I found this bug in my backyard, and I’ve never seen one like this before. I live in Ontario, and thought it looked pretty cool but I cant seem to find it on google anywhere. It’s about 1.5 inches long here’s a picture. Think you could help me out? 😊
Thanks

Dear Emily,
Is the resemblance to Beyonce a reference to the shapely legs on this Western Conifer Seed Bug, one of the Big Legged Bugs in the family Coreidae?  The Western Conifer Seed Bug is native to the Pacific Northwest, but it greatly expanded its range in the 1960s, most likely because of its habit of hibernating in home when the weather cools, and then possibly stowing away in luggage at a time when air travel gained in popularity.
