Cool some of these sps. were my first pet when my 34 year baby sister was a baby and dad used her baby food jars to catch and keep them.Most of what he caught was what we called "cotton spiders" the ones black with the white spots.We do not see those in great numbers like we used to....

Damn those bug killing sprays and all...

That first picture is not of an assassin bug, but of some sort of leaf footed bug (a plant feeder). Look up the genus Acanthocephala. Amazing picture of an even more amazing bug! Good find!
