Mystery Insect

Mystery Insect
Hanover, Grey, Ontario, Canada
May 18, 2020
Found in a sunny garden near a house, containing tulips, peony, etc. The image makes the insect look blue-purple, but in the sunlight, it was actually more of a vibrant green. (We took it inside to take the picture, and then released it where we found it afterwards.) In the attached photo, the insect is in a mason jar, with part of a mouse pad shown behind it.

Moved from ID Request.
