We Grow them Big in IOWA

I seem to have odd nature experiences. It also seems strange that this trait is apparently inherited from my father. 

This morning I opened the front door and saw this beetle. It's huge!

I would say at least 2 inches long. So I took these pictures and spent a little time looking it up. I think it's a Grapevine Beetle. And they are supposed to be 1 inch long.

I might also mention that while standing in my doorway, holding my camera to my face with my zoom lens zoomed, a bird flew right at me and smashed into the glass door! 
If I hadn't screamed and jumped 2 feet I would have had some really neat action shots.

p.s. Bird is fine, but my blood-pressure is not.
