Long Horn Beetle? - Stenocorus schaumii

Long Horn Beetle? - Stenocorus schaumii
4810 S. Harlem Ave., Forest View, N 41° 53.430’ W087° 48.246’, Cook County, Illinois, USA
June 10, 2007
Size: 35~40mm (Body length)
Found on tree bark. Fast mover with little patience for my taking his photo hence the poor focus. Flew very gracefully and almost hovered to a landing on the tree. In flight it appeared much like a wasp of some sort.

We would suggest
Stenocorus schaumii in the guide here

 
That would be it!
Thanks! Perhaps next time the specimen will have the courtesy of standing still log enough to allow the autofocus to lock!
