Saw these bugs same time last year. Now they're back

These look more like B. trivittata to me.
The veins are prominent, but they don't appear to be red.

Moved from ID Request.

This is our first one from the province of Alberta. The image has been cropped to a square so it meets our database standards (square images allow most possible detail for viewing). Thanks for posting!
