Longicorn from Jamaica

Dear Ijah,
This is a Longicorn or Longhorned Borer Beetle from the family Cerambycidae, and the larvae of members of this family are wood boring insects.  It might be
Oreodera glauca jamaicensis which is pictured on Cerambycidae Catalog Search.

Hey Daniel,
Thank tou so much for your early response. You have busted my bubble on hoping to have found a new species of bug , but atleast i and my neighbors are now more educated on this matter. We were very fascinated by the interesting look and fearlessness of the insect.
With thanks
