Every year i seem to run across this large lady bug looking bettle. They seem to love early mornings. Thats the only time i can catch them out and about. What is it?

Hi again tx Finest,
In our opinion, this is a Flower Longhorn in the subfamily Lepturniae, however, despite finding many similar looking individuals on BugGuide, we cannot provide a conclusive identification.
I’d have to take quite a bit of time to search and find you an answer, but the color of this image is a bit off, too.
No sense searching unless you have nothing else to do Eric. Like I wrote, there were many similar ones. The person wrote: “They seem to love early mornings. Thats the only time i can catch them out and about.” Since It was early morning, I did not correct the red color of the light. Here is a color corrected version, though it is still off color.
