Pretty But Deadly

Insects-1

Assassin Bug

The bug’s orange color caught my eye and I didn’t find out until later what kind of bug it was.  It’s an assassin bug and it preys on a variety of other insects.  It uses its beak to pierce its victims and then sucks out their bodily fluids.  Its bite is painful for humans too so I’m glad I didn’t get any closer for the shot.

Have you ever looked at a lady bug closely?  I woke up one morning and found this one in my bed.  I’ve seen this face before in movies with aliens from outer space.
