Assassin Bug

This colorful little Assassin Bug with red wings was just one of very few insects I found at
Tonaquint Nature Park in St. George, Utah on this breezy fall day.  It actually took fight so
I got to see its fiery wings--that's a first for me.  This is also the first Assassin Bug I have
ever found in Washington County.  © Carol Davis 10-5-2009
