Metallic Wood Boring Beetle

Once in awhile an interesting insects shows up like this one that was on a lumber pile.  A little research suggests its a metallic wood boring beetle, certainly aptly named for it's appearance.  Rather a nice little fellow and not that common, but you see a few every year in Bella Coola.

We weren't alone with the windstorm we had yesterday, it sounds like it hit a few other areas of the province as the cold front passed through and brought the lightest of showers over the valley through the night and a few times today.  It was a lot cooler today than it has been. Grizzly
