Damsel Bug  (three photos)
Nabis

I found this damsel bug hunting around my back door.  I think it's rather brave considering how many
spiders already hang out there.  © Carol Davis 9-30-10

nabis
These small, slim bugs eat insects in the adult stage as well as the nymph stage of their development. You can
probably guess how their long proboscis aids in this.  I have found Nabis in my garden but since the bugs are
 getting scarce, I think this one is moving on to better hunting grounds.
