This insect seemed to glide down with his antennae upwards, appearing vertical. He landed and crawled around a bit. Never seen one like this. What is it?
After delving through postings on BugGuide, we were able to identify your Long-jawed Longhorn Beetle, Trachyderes mandibularis. According to BugGuide: “Males have particularly long mandibles.”
