HI Bug People!
I was so thrilled when I ran into these 2 while trimming the tree in our front yard. I live in Central Texas, and after trimming the branch they were on, I set it on another bush to allow them to finish thier bizness–a few days later, we found one on the back deck. When I tried to touch it, it snapped up, and flipped itself over in its defense–Marvalous creatures and beautiful too! Can you tell me about them? Thanks!
Minutes later: I didnt see the Eyed Elator on your site before I sent off my query–Im glad I got to share the pic anyway, but dont worry about the ID–I got it! Thanks so much for your great site!
Your image is a nice addition to our Love Among the Bugs page.
