We were hoping you could help identify this bug we saw on vacation. Never seen anything that looked like this before.
Thanks!!

Banded Alder Borer

Hi Jenny,
In our opinion, the Banded Alder Borer, the insect represented in your photograph, is probably the most beautiful North American beetle.

Thank you!  You’re right it was very beautiful and unique.  🙂
