Hello Bugman,
I found this guy in my cat’s bowl.

Dear interested,
This magnificent beetle is an Eyed Elater,
Alaus oculatus, the largest North American Click Beetle.

Wow, thanks, that was fast.
My friend found one in her yard a few days ago. And we both wanted to know. We especially  wanted to know it it bites, felt pretty safe after seeing the picture of Jay holding one.
Thanks again,
you always come through.
