Close Encounters of the Crawly Kind

Yesterday I felt something hit my back and when I finally stopped screaming and dancing around, this little (or rather big since he was about 2 1/2 inches) fellow was staring at me. The marks kind of look like a ghost's eyes. Anybody know what he is, besides a big ol' bug?

It's death in bug form! No really it is an Eyed Click Beetle. When threatened it will flip over and make a loud clicking sound with it's body. Pretty harmless, even to plants as they just drink flower nectar.

Cool! Thanks for the information!

Things like this make me grateful I live in a cold climate! ;O)
