A Closer Look.

Hmmm, those wheel bug photos didn't quite do the wicked beastie justice…


How about this?

It's in this shot. See it? I do have to wonder if the buckeyes noticed it. (I can't decide if its front-legs-pulled-back position was preparation for a grab, or the equivalent of throwing up one's arms and screaming "eeeeek!". I would think being mobbed by butterflies would be disconcerting for anyone...)

The wheel bug was in the same aster bush as it was last week; I had the camera and am really, really glad I stopped to see if it might still be around. ::grinning a very, very smug grin::
