I'm not sure exactly what this is... perhaps Polydrusus (type of weevil)? I was outside attempting to find some hoverflies and this little fellow starting running across my sidewalk. He was obviously on a mission, so I had to act quickly. I only got a few shots (mostly terribly out of focus). I had to "lead" him a few steps, then click when he got into the frame. I like the way his color is almost blending with the sidewalk. Thanks for looking!
