Kevin Robinson reports that the Dean Mountain Park in Hadley is home to one of the largest assortment of beetles he has ever seen. He found this fellow hiding on a black-eyed susan. I also see them quite often hiding on the yellow petals in my sunflower field. I told him it was a jagged ambush bug. I expect, as usual when I try to key out beetles, one of our local entomologists will explain how I am clearly out in left field.
