Dear bugman,
I love your site! A couple years ago I saw a very strange bug and sent it into this site, and got a response almost immediately (it was a dragonfly naiad), thanks!
I only have one picture of this bug. It was taken in Oregon, if that helps.

Hi Nathaniel,
This is a Longhorned Borer Beetle in the family Cerambycidae, and there isn’t enough detail in your image to be certain, but it appears it might be a Spotted Pine Sawyer,
Monochamus clamator.  You can compare your individual to the images posted to BugGuide.

This is amazing thank you so much for your prompt response. You guys are truly amazing!
