Can anyone ID this bug?

This bug was last seen sitting on the hood of my friend’s truck, near Gananoque ON. (this image was taken by her, not by me)
I have tried using google image to find out what it is, but nothing even remotely similar comes up in my search.
I know that wordpress is full of bug-lovers, and I’m sure that SOMEONE must know what it is.
I’ve never seen one before in my life.
Calling out to the blogosphere…
