He is known as the Eastern-Eyed Click Beetle, but those lovely spots for which he is named are not really his eyes.
He was probably about 1.5 inch long, and definitely an attention grabber. These interesting creatures are harmless to people, i.e., they do not bite or sting, nor do they damage property.
Like other click beetles, these click or snap to right themselves, or to avoid predators, and they can also fly.
