Beetle pandemonium - Rhagium inquisitor

Beetle pandemonium - Rhagium inquisitor
Moss Springs Campground, Cove, Union County, Oregon, USA
June 19, 2017
Size: ~15mm
In the campground the forest service had just cut down and sliced some large spruce or fir for future firewood and had it piled. You could smell the resin from across the campground. It was a beetle magnet. We were smashed into by beetles as they flew in to the piles from every direction! A beautiful Rhagium was our next find.
