What kind of beetle is THIS?
I live in Philadelphia, in Center City, on a pier on the Delaware that is concrete and steel and THIS was outside on the atrium “floor.” Any idea what it is? When it was taken to the river, it did little but roll over on the paper and play dead until dropped, then when it “realized” it was falling toward water, it suddenly found flight! Thanks,
Beth Brennan

Hi Beth,
This is a Green June Beetle, Cotinis nitida.
