Horntail Wasp

Found this Horntail wasp with its intimidating size that kind of got my attention. Although they are not an aggressive Wasp and are supposed to be harmless to humans. It was out on an old stump walking up and down the trunk maybe depositing eggs or something. You can see its ovipositor coming out of its abdomen probing around the bark.
