Don’t know what this fellow is, but he is eye-catching! Will update the post if we get an ID on him.  We found him walking around on some landscape fabric on the way to get closer to the coachwhip from an earlier post.

UPDATE: Thanks to U of Arkansas entomologist Kelly Loftin for identifying this fellow as an eyed click beetle.

BUG EYED -- This guy's coloration is probably meant to fool predators into thinking he's something bigger than he really is.
