Isn't this a rather odd beetle with its fantastic antennae? They remind me of Moose antlers.
I specifically took the photo at this angle to show off the beetle's Moose-like resemblance.
Thankfully, some children alerted me to the presence of this beetle on the side of an old school house. They came running and said, "Hey Dana, you should come see this weird bug". I guess I must have a reputation for liking strange critters.
Here is a link to the follow-up post on the Moose Beetle.
