Chalcophora virginiensis

I spotted this guy in a prairie while foraging:

I've always liked beetles, though this one is apparently a big of a pest, since its larvae bore into pine trees.

One of these days I'm going to start an insect collection, 'cause I'm nerdy like that. 

For now I'll let my finds live, uncaptured by anything but my trusty Nikon.

More about this beetle can be found here.
