Does anyone know what this critter is on my corn?

Mercer Island, WA

It doesn't appear to be damaging anything - but there are lots of them on the corn plant.

It looks like a soldier beetle (family Cantharidae). These will feed both on pollen and other small insects; it will not damage your corn, The aphids, on the other hand...
