Eye Candy Friday

an unexpected guest

This little guy landed on my shirt a few weeks ago when I was visiting Mike and my dad at work. He stayed long enough for me to take a good picture! If you clickity for biggity you can really see the detail.

Whatever it is has big googly eyes.

I believe that is the
Chalcophora virginiensis, or the "Sculptured Pine Borer". These feed on pine foliage, so this is likely the bug since the site where that picture was taken is surrounded by pine forests. :)
