My cousin photographed this bug a few days ago. We would love to know what he/she is. It’s a pretty bug!

Rustic Borer, perhaps

Hi Jennifer,
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.”
