Black Beetles

There was the most amazing insect watching today in the goldenrod (Solidago sp.) flowers.
There were at least five of these Epicauta pennsylvanica (Coleoptera: Meloidea) beetles running around the plants after one another. Mating perhaps?
Then there were predaceous ambush bugs (a lighter yellow female and a darker brown one) (Hemiptera: Phymatinae: Phymata sp.) mating and walking about.
And another ambush bug caught a honey bee in the flowers and was working on sucking it dry.

I went and hung out in the goldenrod (Solidago) this afternoon and saw a great array of insects including this soldier beetle (Insecta: Coleoptera: Cantharidae: Chauliognathus pensylvanicus) along with flies, several black beetles, a braconid wasp, and munching caterpillars.

This striped long-horned beetle (
