What can I say? Bugs just find me attractive.

Life hack: wear a headlamp out in the country at night, and you too can have giant beetles flying at your face.

Flashback to a year ago! The original “Massive Beetle Explores Human” gifset featuring a woodboring beetle. Can’t wait to see who comes out next year!

Reblobbed May 23, 2018

Isn’t that a hardwood boring beetle? Or is it a different type? I know I have found quote a few of those in my backyard in the city, and I think I have found a couple of patent leather beetles

I believe it is a longhorn beetle in the genus Mallodon [link] but nobody has IDed my iNat observation so I could be wrong!
