Sometimes, no topic suits and you just have to add a new category. Thus the topic 'Random'.
As I was out on the deck today I spied this beetle that I had never seen before. Hmmm. I 'googled' beetle identification oregon and then scrolled through pictures till I found one that looked like him.
Identification: Western Conifer Seed Bug
If its purpose is to eat the seeds of conifers, what it it doing on my deck that is not even made of wood? Unknown.
In any case, I thought it was interesting - if a little creepy.
