An Odd One
Hi, from Almont, North Dakota. I’ve been able to identify most of the wonderful bugs which have shown up this year, but this has me stumped. The first shot is a macro, this bug was very small. The 2nd pic is for a better sense of scale. The flowers it is on are mint. Thanks for any help.

Hi Chris,
This is an Ambush Bug in the family Phymatidae. Ambush Bugs are predators that ambush pollinating insects that are attracted to the blossoms where they patiently wait.
