I had the same bug a few weeks ago. It is a Click Beetle. Here are the responses I got.

Cool Doc, I wonder where all the brothers and sisters are? Nice bug to have around and so unusual.

Cute baby mantis on the jar, Doc. I saw one about the same size a few days ago in my strawberry patch. We tend not to notice them until they get to about 2 inches long. Old timers around here say they never had them here until about 5 or 6 years ago. I'm guessing somebody bought some egg cases.

I bought some egg cases several years ago. Don't get to see the adults very often, but see egg cases lots of places. On the backs of my labels , branches, etc. And don't get to see the young very often either Root. Nice shot. Donna

Hey Root, you should have been with me this evening out in the garden with your camera.After earlier saying that i rarely see a young praying mantis, I saw one. My dog Blue and i were in the garden eating peas, (she just loves them) when i felt something on my leg and there it was a young mantis just about the size of the one in your photo. I got him off on to my finger but it didn't want to leave, I finally persuaded it to go on to one of the pea vines. Funny coincedence (spelling). Donna
