Buggus giganticus

This guy’s been hanging out on the front porch for several days now.  Don’t know where he came from or why he’ s hanging out on the brick.  He’s alive, I checked.

Ponderous Borer

Big herkin' bug.

I also looked him up with my fearsome Google skillz, and he is apparently a Ponderous Borer (Ergates spiculatus), a large pine borer beetle that lives on dead and dying trees.  Well okay then.  And that’s my finger for comparison, not my kid’s.   Big bug.
