This thundering beetle was found --as they often are, it seems-- hanging out under a fallen log. It looks like it's got a hefty number of mites riding its head. Must be fun. I've seen a ton of these in the south Georgia area this spring and early summer. This was at Grand Bay WMA just east/northeast of Valdosta, Georgia.
