Red-shouldered Pine Borer

Stictoleptura canadensis


My flower garden.


I found this little giant messing with my flowers. Not sure who he is and would like some help with that. Is he friend or foe?

Splendid find!

This is a longicorn beetle (Cerambycidae).
They have long antennae. It is a huge family and smaller species are commonly found feeding on flower nectar. Larvae are wood borers and this probably makes them bad guys... from one perspective. Little giant... =)
