Can anyone identify this Insect, it has been hanging out "comes and goes" in my backyard for one month now. Captured with the D850 and the Sigma 150mm f2.8 APO DG HSM Macro and Magmod magsphere diffuser.

Thanks for looking.
 
As it happens, just this very morning I saw an article in The Washington Post and this guy is an invasive Spotted Lantern Fly.....

"The spotted lantern fly, Lycorma delicatula, was accidentally imported to Berks County, Pa., in 2014, presumably in a shipping container from Asia. Since then, the insect has spread through eastern Pennsylvania to New York, Maryland, Virginia and New Jersey."
