Can you tell me what this insect is?

Asked April 4, 2018, 2:14 PM EDT

I am attaching two photos, in of the top and one of the bottom, of this insect. The pictures may not be good enough for an identification, but I thought I'd try. I would appreciate your help to identify it. Thanks so much. Marghi Hopkins

This looks like a carpet beetle.
They are commonly seen this time of year at windows as they are trying to find their way out.
Here is our page about them:
