What is this beast?!

 imageWhile weeding this morning I was joined by this insect. It wasnt bothered by me being so close and stayed on the flower for about 10 minutes. I would guesstimate its length to be 1.5 inches possibly more.  I have searched a few image galleries of common bees but can't see anything quite right and it seems to have a 'waist' too wide to be a wasp?
