Blue-winged what?

Never know what I'm gonna see in our Wildscape when I wander around. Awhile ago, I was out with my camera, hunting a big orange hornet-like insect when I spotted these nectaring on the mountain mint. With help from online sources, I was able to identify them as blue-winged wasps (Scolia dubia). The photo above is not that great but good enough for identification purposes.
