This little assassin on Antelope Island was about 10 mm and was hanging out over the edge of these
defunct flowers to catch flying
insects, I assume. It was very cute

Common Yarrow, especially after it has bloomed, is a favorite places for assassins, Dictyna spiders
 and
running crab spiders.
This assassin was a few millimeters larger than
the first one. © Carol Davis, 9-22-2011


hatched assassins
I think these are tiny Assassin Bug hatchlings, at least they have the appearance of them with their bulging legs
and long proboscis. They were about the size
of small ants. © Carol Davis, 7-23-2009, Antelope Island
