Pine Sawyer Beetle

We see these guys every once in a while. He was on our porch this afternoon. Looked him up and he is a Pine Sawyer Beetle - usually don't attack healthy trees. Larvae help decompose dying, recently dead and felled conifers. They may have a little city going in our wood pile right now! Mark put his finger near him and he latched on to his nail with his mandibles. Creepy little amazing beetle!
