I could not get a profile picture on this one so this is all I have - looks like the wasp family? Anyone know what this is?

This is either some type of mud dauber or a paper wasp, though I think a mud dauber.

thanks gregr18 - armed with "paper wasp" I did some searches and found

I found the potter wasp and the mason wasp - this is an incredible site for identification - beautiful photos - and did more searching on the mason wasp and I think this is it!

Thanks very much,
