First time I’ve seen these on my sunflowers, they blend in very well, tend to stay on the seedheads or right next to the petals.
Found August 1, 2010 in Trinidad, Colorado (on the New Mexico border in central colorado)
Ambush Bugs like the one in your photo wait camouflaged on blossoms to prey upon pollinating insects.
