Anybody know what this is? First one I've ever seen.
When I first saw it, I was like......looks like a red pepper.

I will see what I can find! Cool shot, though! I would call your local agricultural extension service, and speak to their entemologist! Probably can ID it for you in a heartbeat!
 
Cool. I've seen similar species but never that color.
 
Assasin bug.
I have some other images that show the long spike ( his mouth)
I figured he was dangerous by the coloring.
According to sources, he will bite ( or stick that spike in you) and cause pain.

Should be a cool shot once I finish with him in post.
 
LS.. how long was this puppy, approximately? Any other shots of it... top, bottom, head, etc?

Near as I could tell, the body length is a little under a half inch.
Shot him with a 100mm macro and 25mm extension tube...........but not nearly maxed out.
I was backed off pretty good.
I'll see what I can find..........
 
Wow! Awesome looking bug and NICE SHOT!!! The composition and focus is really good. The background contrasts nicely and adds to the overall feel IMO.
 
And of course, It just isn't my style, not to post an image of the subject looking the wrong way.
