What's That Bug? does not endorse extermination

I entered this before
I sent this before but I don’t know if you got it. I photographed this bug last summer in Northern NJ. I have never seen anything like this before and if I didn’t have the one photo of it, I don’t think I could have convinced anyone else of it’s existence! It was only about an inch or so big, I had to zoom in to get a good photo of it. I only got the one photo before it flew away. Please help me identify this bug!
