it is called a "bark bettle" mostly found around evergreen trees (i.e pine, doug fir etc) the bug looks cool but the down side to them is that they stink if you "bug" them.

Yup, I’ve seen it once before when on a Secret Governmental Biological assignment in Central America.
I would be moving if I were you.

no, it is as I feared...the ducks saw to it that the bug was planted...
larceny about, I think...next thing you know, more bugs will be turning up on the Macro section...

It was the mallards who did it. You can't take them anywhere without apologising first.
