Two-Striped Planthoppers sometimes come in non-camo pink. This lovely plant-feeding leaf-mimic has the Best Nymph Ever! Looks like an Arthur Rackham drawing the BugLady saw once.
There’s a reason they named it Butterfly weed!
Carnivores on Yellow Flower
The BugLady always checks out motionless insects and is frequently rewarded for her troubles. Sharing may be caring (or is it the other way around?), but arthropods are notably unsentimental. Did the ambush bug get the bumblebee, or did the crab spider? (Oh yes, there is!)
Red and Green Stinkbug
A glamour shot of a Red and Green Stinkbug, resplendent in Christmas colors, on the BugLady’s white plasticware.
The business end of a Water Scorpion, possibly aimed at an hors d’ oeuvre …
Jagged Ambush Bugs
A bug-magnet like swamp milkweed is a felicitous place for two lusty carnivores to hang out.
… and a Racket-Tailed Emerald in a Pear Tree (or maybe a buckthorn). No mystery why Dragonfly fans are Dragonfly fans.
