This is a metallic wood borer. Most attack only dead or dying trees, though some
lay eggs on healthy trees and the larvae bore into the tree eventually killing it.
Thankfully it wasn't the emerald ash borer, an invasive species which is
killing millions of otherwise healthy ash trees across the Northeast, Midwest, Ontario and Quebec.

other sizes: small medium original

Absolutely gorgeous shot! These beetles are always a delight to see, unless they're the emerald ash borer! V
