Beautiful bug on the window
June 7, 2010
I work at my computer where I can watch my tiny yard which backs onto a creek in DFW area of north Texas. I watch the birds/hawks during the day, raccoons, possums, and occasional fox at night. Yesterday, I looked up to see this lovely specimen. However, I cannot identify him. Please help..I had a cog beetle one day, but this? Hmm.

Flower Longhorn

Dear All Critter Lover,
This Flower Longhorn is
Stenelytrana emarginata and it does not have a common name.  BugGuide indicates it is attracted to fermenting bait.  Were you by chance drinking a banana daquiri at the time of the sighting?  Your photo is quite painterly.

    Thanks for withdrawing the advice about red wasps not being aggressive. We are being stung constantly going in and out of the back door from our garage. I try not to kill things, but this is out of control! Any suggestions for ways to get rid of them while minimizing harm to other insects and animals? we are i Brentwood TN by the way.
