Thank you Mike and Ed.
It's great to get a species determination.

Hey Jim
- hope that wasn't the high for the day - Brrr! Cool pic for a little beast.

 
Winter's coming.
There have been some frosty mornings. The species that overwinter as adults are looking for good hiding spots, which is what I think this one was doing.

Cryptocephalus ?
I think it is a Cryptocephalus sp. but I'm not sure.
