Flying Insect in Georgia - Onthophagus hecate

Flying Insect in Georgia - Onthophagus hecate
Athens, Oglethrope County, Georgia, USA
May 7, 2007
Size: 5 mm
I was alerted by its flight when I disturbed it in a shady, deep woods location within a few feet of a creek. When settled it was disinclined to move further and agitating it to a new position didn't overly bother it. I'm assuming it's a beetle, but I'm really pretty wretched with beetles. It puzzles me. I'm not even sure which end is which.
