Your letter to the bugman:  I found this insect dying on my deck (though the dog may have put it there). I’ve never seen one like it, much less at the end of March when very little is moving here yet. I assume it’s a beetle of some kind, but Google isn’t much help.
Thanks for answering my curiosity if you have the time! 🙂
