    4C83FA07-5519-4710-B0FB-098752C25AE6.jpeg On a hike in the foothills with my wife yesterday, I ran into this lovely couple dining on a fly. I just snapped some photos and left them alone. I have never kept assassin bugs, but I find my interest in doing so is increasing with time...
    Thanks to bugguide, I have a species ID.

    Nice! That's a great find. Good on you for leaving them in nature.

    Wow, I don't think I've ever seen an assassin bug around here (tons of LFBs and firebugs, though). Nice find!
