The insects pictured here were captured by the kids over the past week or, but it took me a while to get around to photographing them. The small beetle came from near the beach on 31 Dec, I’m not sure where exactly Rowan found the caterpillar, but it was crawling at the edge of a sidewalk, and the Red Flat Bark Beetle (Cucujus clavipes) Rowan found in her room. It probably got into the house on firewood.
