My cousin photographed this bug a few days ago. We would love to know what he/she is. It’s a pretty bug!
We believe, based on this photo posted to BugGuide, that your beetle is a Rustic Borer, Xylotrechus colonus. According to Bugguide: “Larvae feed under the bark (occasionally in the bark) of hickory and other hardwoods, also pine.”
