Pole Borer Longhorn Beetle frontal view

Beetle frontal view
Latin name: family Parandra sp.

Nancy found this Pole Borer Beetle in the back yard two week-ends ago. We put it on a freshly cut stump and I proceeded to take several pictures of it. As with many close-up shots of insects that I take, viewing the photo revealed details not noticed with the naked eye. In this case, I was surprised at the sharp segmentation of the antennae and the wierd little feelers under the head.
