Is it an Alien or a Dinosaur?

This is a “Wheel Bug”, part of the Assassin Bug family. It eats other insects, including caterpillars. It has a fang on the front of its head that it uses to “stab” its prey. It WILL “stab” humans if it is handled casually or annoyed. The “stab” from its fang is very painful.

I encountered this strange looking creature on the bridge as we were crossing Sunday morning on our walk. I’ve never seen anything like this before, so I’m incredibly glad the shot came out so well.

The bud and the bloom. The color is so vivid and rich. I always look forward to this bush blooming in the neighborhood.

Something about these new leaves, that had fallen from a tree, caught my eye. The texture of the leaves created an interesting pattern, caught the light, created shadows.

I just happened to look down at the Iris that had fallen over and noticed a baby bunny, hiding among the plants in the morning sunshine. I couldn’t resist photographing and sharing him. 🙂
