Another awesome bug

Spined Woodborer, Ergates spiculatis, a 2-inch long Cerambycid beetle with awesome jaws was on the floor beneath our ping pong table.  My son put it in a jar and thought it was dead.  When I got home from another visit to Dellinger's Pond, he showed me the beetle, and when I picked it up it started to squeak and flail about with its antennae and legs.  Then my wife took over the camera and made a little video of me giving an impromptu lesson about the critter.  Fun.  The video is not ready for a premiere by any means, but it whetted the appetite for refining our skills and making short video clips for this blog.
