What is this beetle in Montreal, Canada
Hi,
This bug looks beautiful, but is it dangerous?

Had you scrolled down our homepage, you would have found another photo of a Locust Borer, Megacyllene robiniae. The closely related Painted Hickory Borer, Megacyllene caryae, is very similar. It is not dangerous, but it probably does mimic Yellow Jackets for protection from birds.
