Insect With Gold Wing Tips
October 4, 2009
I was hiking around Sugarloaf Mountain with some friends when we spotted this odd insect. I looked around trying to identify it, but couldn’t find anything so I thought I’d ask.
Sugarloaf Mountain, MD
This is a Wheel Bug. Not all Wheel Bugs exhibit this coloration, and it may just be the way the light is reflecting on the wing membranes.
