New bug for me!

I found this little guy on my watering can today. I’ve never seen one before. It’s about the size of a ladybug but I’ve never seen this metallic green on a bug before. Do you know what it is? I live just outside Fredericton, New Brunswick in Eastern Canada.

This beautifully metallic Leaf Beetle is a Dogbane Beetle, Chrysochus auratus.
Thank you very much for your reply. I can’t believe I’ve never seen one before! I’ve lived here all my life (and I’m 62). You’d think I’d have noticed them before. lol
