beetle

Description:

Dark in color, and about an inch long. Has red tips on it's antennas

Notes:

Seemed friendly and I held it for quite awhile and took several photos of it. When I was finished I said to it, "Thank you for letting me take pictures of you", and right then and there it flew off. LOL
