Very interesting macroshot of this bizarre bug, which seems to have the same forelegs as a preying manthis ? Great sharpness and details on its strange morphology. Thanks for showing, Patrick

This belongs to the Order of True Bugs (bearing piercing mouthparts)Hemiptera (half wings ... for portion of wings are leathery, hind portion hyline or more clear). This fellow belongs to the Family Phymatidae (assassin bugs). They wait for prey to approach them and inflict a toxic bite that helps to immobilize the "victim". Then they such the fluids from the bodies of their prey. They have large raptorial fore legs which are powerful to grip their prey during infliction of the bite and while feeding. Nice clear photo demonstating the position of "ready to attack". I would have cropped some of the gray area to better focus on this awsome insect predator. BTW, you have some very nice insect photos. TFS them. Best wishes, Mike
