Yikes....

Almost stepped on this dude this morning. Man, I live in BC, I don't like this crap around me. These things are for people who live in Winterpeg or Ontario, or some other god-forsaken place!!

Yuck.

I think its a June bug. They click when they fly. Crazy lookin' things. But I couldn't have stepped on it. I would have felt bad. Bad Karma.

June bugs around here are solid brown, striped beetles something like that around here would be potato beetle (all farmers kill them on sight) and there are probably many harmless striped ones around too (and not sure the farmers check for differences). If you see another one try to get a macro of it's mouth parts, I would be interested in seeing whether it is a chewer or a sucker.

That's one reason I love living up here in the great white north...the cold kills the bugs. Sure we have bugs just like anywhere else but not for the winter months and the ones we do get only have a few months to grow so they are not too big.
