The aboriginal people of the world and many other cultures share a common respect for nature and the universe, and all of the life that it holds. We should learn from them!

@krobra, Yep, that's it Kurt. Thank You! for the ID. We've never seen one here before today. I suppose a few are ok but we don't want a swarm. We've had a lot of new-to-us bugs show up this year.

I don't think I have ever encountered one but the name does sound familiar.
I'll have to remember not to touch any if I ever do see any. Thumbs up

It was a fairly good sized bug, probably 1¼" long.
