Hi,
I believe this is a female Eastern Hercules Beetle, but I’m not totally sure. It was found on the side of my house in the evening. I live in middle Tennessee. I know you have posted some of these already, but I think the second picture turned out really well.

Hi Matthew,
You are correct.  This is a female Eastern Hercules Beetle, Dynastes tityus.  The close-up is an interesting angle.
