I'd kinda like an ID on the plant and the bug. I was told that the flower is in the carrot family, but does it have a common name?

I'm reasonably confident putting this in Hymenoptera, but beyond that I've got nothing. It appears to have a long ovipositor in the back, so I'm leaning towards the possibility of some sort of wasp maybe?

Normally kids are really afraid of bees, but we were really lucky to see these bees up close in the bluebonnets, and by the time we were done chatting, the girls were super excited about bees! (Although they were really indignant that female bees do all the work!)

This huge guy was hanging out on the back porch of the dining hall one evening. We saw another one in the Sleepy unit later in the evening, fluttering under the lights. These guys are huge!
