I’m back with another beautiful creature. I believe this is the large green beetle. And I thought you would enjoy the pictures. Thanks again for what you do.

Dear Neanderpaul,
Thanks for your kind words.  This impressive creature is a female Eastern Hercules Beetle.  The larger, horned male Eastern Hercules Beetle is the heaviest North American beetle.
