beetle with stainedglass wings

Hi, We found this beetle hanging out on our newly built workshop. He was on the underside of the eaves. Very elegant wing patterns. Thanks for any clues on what this might be.

Hi Alan,
This is not a beetle, but a Stonefly, a member of the order Plecoptera.  They are generally found near sources of water.
