Hi guys,
I saw this little guy flying around my garden today!
What kind of bug do I have here?
Thanks in advance!

Dear Michele,
This is a Broadheaded Sharpshooter,
Oncometopia orbona, a species with sucking mouthparts that feeds on the life-nourishing fluids in plants.  For that reason they are not considered welcome in the garden.
