Small irridescent black and tan beetle - Agrilus ruficollis

Size: roughly 10 mm
Strolling around on my blackberry bushes--could it be an Agrilus?

I was so excited when I took the photo, as it looked like a "non-emerald ash borer"--so I put it up immediately. Then I looked at the other Agrilus on the Bugguide site and there it was! I really appreciate all the assistance with identifying insects at this site! Thanks!

Yes it is an Agrilus, maybe A, ruficollis...

Sure is the Agrilus ruficolli
Sure is the Agrilus ruficollis, the Red-necked cane borer.
