Brown Spotted Beetle - Dynastes tityus - female

Brown Spotted Beetle - Dynastes tityus - Female
Stockbridge, Henry County, Georgia, USA
July 21, 2002
Size: ~2-3" in length
I found this beetle crawling long very slowly outside of my garage. I've been living in the same house for about 10 years and I haven't seen another beetle like this one before or since. For reference, Stockbridge is a slightly rural area, just recently touched by suburban sprawl at the time of the picture.
