It looks like a little predatory wasp. Definitely good!!!
These guys, girls, actually hunt their prey and build a nest. Sometimes of mud or sand, sometimes dig an egg chamber in the ground. They sting their prey to immobilize it and lay an egg on it once it is inside their egg chamber. The egg hatches and the larval wasp feeds on the immobilized prey insect!!! Thumbs up

By the way, all of these types of wasps do not hurt humans. But always remember, they can sting but it is very, very unlikely.
Welcome!
