Picking Flowers
This insect is commonly named the `Wheel Bug`. It doesn`t bite or sting, but instead can deliver a rather painful stab with its proboscis if disturbed. I tried very hard not to disturb it. :))

quite an unusual `bug` Sandra, and you captured it well with your usual expert eye.....interesting composition too.
Do you know what plant it`s nibbling on?

What an amazing creature you captured on "film" to let us in on this interesting story.....
Beautiful photo....
You did an excellent job...holding your camera still.....knowing that you could be "stabbed" at any moment...
I thought I had seen them all!!
Do you have more of these creatures from the "past" smile
