Blink and you'll miss it

Encountered this endlessly searching beetle today and thought I'd better find what food he/she was looking for. Especially given that the last one I found ( https://www.blipfoto.com/entry/2703192030388945679) was after my herbs.

The all-knowing internet says it's a Click beetle from the Elateridae family - no idea exactly what sort as there are loads. They seem harmless, but their larvae cause serious damage to roots! Hey ho, not much I can do about that. Definitely learning something new every day....
