Dear Suzzanne,
This beautiful Scarab Beetle is commonly called a Figeater and August is the best time to view them

    Thanks again for your response. I just wanted to add that I thought it was interesting how it dug itself into the mulch after taking this pic. I saw another comment on the Fig Eater of how this is normal behavior for egg laying. Thanks again for what you do!
