I am pretty sure this is the common red soldier beetle, Rhagonycha fulva, check out the black tips on its wings on the second photo. It also appears to have the tarsal formula 5-5-5, which rules out cardinal beetles (5-5-4).
after just having seen another photo of what seems to be the same beast in another thread, which I also mistook for a Rhagonycha, and after having looked at your photo again, I think I will need to revise my ID. I think I can count only 4 tarsal segments on the hind leg, which means it is not a solider beetle. Based on that and its black tips on the wingcases, I am inclined to think it is a wharf borer, Nacerdes melanura, belonging to the family Oedemeridae, the false blister beetles.
JD who started this other thread pointed this out here:
Apologies, I should not have been so quick with my ID.
