    Genus - Leptoglossus

    Looks remarkably similar to an assassin bug.

    Cool colors! That is a pretty weird mix of leaf footed and assassin bug with the folded beak.

    Thanks guys. I knew (but wasn't positive) that it was a leaf-footed and not an assassin...but not being 100% I wasn't brave enough to pick him up (an assassin will tear your world up if you pick it up).

    Love the color and composition. Great sharp focus. I think I would like them a little better without the empty space between the leaves in the background. Something a little smoother and more consistent in the background.

    Other than that great shots!

    Thanks...unfortunately I don't have much control over where the bug stands so empty space between the 2 leaves was all I was given.

    Thanks Denny
