I think they nailed it. Green bug on a flower, and pretty nice shots of it too.

Ya'll are just bein' silly now. I've seen those a lot before, OP: that's a daisy. With a bug on it. :lmao:

Oh, Google KNOWS. It may have just decided we don't NEED to know. :lmao:

OP: On a serious note: How life-size is this? How big was the bug? There are some insect ID sites I've used before--with mixed success, I'll grant--to ID some of the insects I've shot. Might give it a try. Just google "insect ID" or something of that sort and try using one of the resultant sites.

Seriously, I think it's an Aphid but I wouldn't swear to it. I have no clue what the flower is, I'll go with sm4him's Daisy claim.

Not a katydid. *Could* be an aphid of some sort, but I don't think so. Aphids usually have much longer antennae, and they have all the little hairs on their legs instead of those serrated edges to the legs.

EDIT: I think it's called an Ambush Bug. Found it in one of my PB ID guides; haven't found a good photo of one on an online site yet.

Edit, Take Two: Here you go--Ambush Bug. You should send your photos to those people, because yours are much better than theirs. :D

OK, then I'm gonna go back to a Green Bug On A Flower 'cause I'm pretty sure that's right ;)
