"Xmas is Nigh!"

When we see these guys around, we know that Xmas is not far away,
Don't know the correct name but we call them "Xmas beetles"

Nice shot, Gary.
We used to call them the same in South Africa. Besides being a nuisance by getting in the way all the time, I used to feel neutral towards them. Until one night while we were asleep, one of them crawled into my wife's ear. I had to grab it with tweezers to pull it out. And the more I pulled, the more it tried to crawl deeper. I won the tug-of-war, and since then I've had an aversion to these guys.

Living in Canada now, I'm happy to say I don't miss them at all!

Cheers

Sorry to hear about your experience with the beetles,
Guess all you have to worry about now are bears
Regards,
