What weird bug is this?

This is the second one I saw in the last couple of weeks. Never saw this before.
This one came flying at and landed on my head When I brushed it off, I either killed it or it played dead. It's about or close to 1 1/2 inches long and kind of flatish.

This is the top of it:

Oh, wow, thanks! Strange I've never seen one before. Interesting looking bug. Glad it's just a beetle.

Couldn’t find anything about them being attracted to peoples “heads”. I’m guessing you were in his way!

LOL! I think I was in his way. I was out in my back yard with my dog, and it just came flying and crashed into my head! I went out a few hours later and it was gone. Either something ate it or it was playing possum!
