Your expertise is requested in identifying this creature. It was crawling on top of a fence board, it caught my eye and I took its pic. It is cool looking but fierce looking, too!
Thanks, WTB!

Big Legged Plant Bug

Big Legged Plant Bug

Dear LBrennan,
This is a Coreid Bug in the genus
Acanthocephala, and members of that genus are sometimes called Big Legged Plant Bugs.  We know of no incidents of a person being bitten by a Big Legged Plant Bug.

Thank you, Daniel!  I applaud your quick response AND your expertise!
