It turned out to be a ten-lined June beetle. She immediately called me over to take a look (since I like interesting bugs). I took some pictures to show you.
It's a greenish brown colour on the shell with cream stripes with dark outlines.
Oh no... The beetle had moved to the middle of the porch. It was still alive, but it was leaking. Ugh... I folded a little paper box and put him inside of it.
Now the paper box is sitting on my succulent plants. I wanted to give him the chance to fly away in case he survives. I am not so sure he will though. He was leaking a lot from the back.
Poor, poor beetle!
