Found this not-so-little guy hanging around my office today and he must have wanted his picture taken so I obliged. My first time seeing this caterpillar hunter, the fiery searcher (Calosoma scrutator). Name sounds like something from a J.R.R. Tolkien book! I think a book could be written about this….

Nice detail of this jewel coloured insect.
Thank you! It was a beautiful creature and I’m glad I was able to see it.
