This guy caught my attention as he crawled all over one of the garden
chairs. I had never seen anything like him, and in some ways, he reminded me of the big tomato worms with those big eyes on his back. Come to find out, he is a large click beetle. He was about two inches long and had big spotted wings. His claim to fame is if he falls on his back, he clicks his wings together in an effort to right himself. That way he makes a lot of noise. Those big, extra eyes don’t hurt him in his quest for safety from becoming some bird’s meal.
