Female Longhorned Borer Beetle

Dear Kristen,
This is a Longhorned Borer Beetle in the family Cerambycidae, and because of the presence of an ovipositor at the tip of the abdomen, we can tell she is a female.  There is not much detail in your image, but the ovipositor is rather distinctive, so we believe based on this BugGuide image, this might be
Graphisurus fasciatus which looks similar and ranges in Ohio.
