 Necrophila americana - Necrophila americana

Necrophila americana - Necrophila americana
Dalhousie Township, Lanark, Ontario, Canada
June 20, 2018
Size: 1/2 inch
For the past two weeks we've been stripping caterpillars off our trees and house into buckets of soapy water. The buckets were then emptied far from the house, producing a stinking mass of dead caterpillars. This mass is now crawling with carrion beetles (the long view shows about 20 of them).
