Description:

I was so excited I couldn't hold the camera steady! Only second time in 20 years I've seen one of these in the forest. They are bigger than a queen hornet but don't fly as stongly - truly spectacular insects.

I've never seen one -

but I can't imagine what else it might be, hence my agreement. What a find!
