I live in Winnipeg Manitoba and I found this Beetle on our
garage this morning. I took a snap shot of the insect I haven’t
had time to take a proper photo of the insect so far. I used my
Nikon D3100 & SB-400 flash with TTL cord & my 40mm f2.8

Dear Normally ?,
We believe this is a Longhorned Borer Beetle in the family Cerambycidae, but we are not certain. We base that guess on the width of the elytry at the base as well as the spine on the thorax. We have not been able to locate a species identification and we hope our readership can assist.
Thanks to a comment from Mardikavana, we now agree that this looks like the Cerambycid Stenocorus schaumii which is pictured on BugGuide.
