Longhorn beetle photo shoot

This small beetle was on my kitchen window screen last night. I saved it till this morning to take a picture in the daylight.

Possibly Anelaphus species.
I never really used to care about the scientific names of bugs, until I started visiting and posting to BugGuide. I still would prefer to just say, "Look at this cool beetle I found," but at the same time, I feel a responsibility to provide more information, or at least do a little research on it.

And, hey, who knew these things had hair?
