What in the world????
UPDATED: Our "friends" came back tonight plus we had the pleasure of watching a Black Widow attack one of them...I was able to get a little closer this time! And, we learned they fly!
Here is what was kindly sitting on my house when John back in town Thursday night!! This is what I think you call a Ground Beetle! UGH! It had to be at least 4 - 5 inches long! No joke! Now, I know it does not look that long but it was about 15 feet up and next to the front door jam and light so we couldn't get a great picture. I screamed and freaked out so much that I scared V. half to death and then she wouldn't got to bed.
John went out the back door to go around to the front of the house to see it and there was ANOTHER BIG BLACK CREATURE on the back patio. I think it was Mama beetles' baby from the front of the house. I had the jeebies for the rest of the night!
