Blister Beetle - Epicauta funebris

Blister Beetle - Epicauta funebris
Geneseo, Henry County, Illinois, USA

I found this beetle on some low-lying brush. He was more than patient with me getting photos of him. He never really moved and I was pretty close. I wish all of them were that easy.

Margined blister beetle.
This is most likely a margined blister beetle, E. pestifera. Moving to species page. Nice shot!
