Soldier Beetle (Atalantycha neglecta)
I'm not 100 percent on this ID, but I know I'm pretty close. Definitely a soldier beetle (I actually mistook it for a firefly at first DOH)!
And, yep, I know I could have used more lighting here. I grabbed a hasty shot when I got home yesterday, and I'm glad I at least got this one (it flew off soon after). On my front porch.
''Atalantycha neglecta'' is a species of soldier beetle in the family Cantharidae. It is found in North America.
