Eastern Eyed Click Beetle
Wow! What a strange looking beetle! It's kind of beautiful too. Reminds me of the "eyes" on moths. Found it on my storm door.
We were a little freaked out a first but then thought - it's day time so those nasty palmetto bugs aren't out yet.
Went out and took it's picture and it never moved. Thought how weird - it looks like it has pollen on it.
Looked it up and seems to be crop friendly. Eating other bugs and larva.
