Sand-Wasp - possibly Ammophila?

Must be a sand-wasp (family Sphecidae, Digger wasps). These hunt caterpillars as shown; they bury each caterpillar (alive) and lay an egg in it. The Ammophila sand-wasps have abdomen black at rear, orange at front, at end of a very long tubular 'waist' - but only the waist is visible here.
