Default Longhorn in My House

I found this little guy crawling across my ceiling. So after capturing the half inch creature I decided to take a few pictures. I placed him on a piece of black acrylic, used flash and stacked photos.

I think it's a longhorn beetle.

He must have been thirsty because he only stopped moving after I placed a drop of water near him.

Great shots Clint, really like the second one. But I was really hoping to see a steer in your house.

Maybe I should steer clear of misleading titles - I wouldn't want a stampede of complaints!
