Thanks Doren B! I think you are right! But I have left a question mark so that any longhorn beetle experts can add to this ID, Thanks!

This is a wild guess, prompted by what appears to be golden hairs on your specimen, but it might ( as in a mere possibility ) be Lepturobosca chrysocoma. The gold coloring, though, could just be pollen from the daisy.

Looks like one of the Flower Longhorn Beetles, subfamily Lepturinae. There are approximately 200 species in this subfamily in North America.
