Your letter to the bugman:  This bug was seen a couple years ago.  It’s on a reed over a small backyard pond.  I have no idea where to even start looking to find out what it is.  It looks prehistoric to me!
How you want your letter signed:  Thanks! Jeanne

Dear Jeanne,
Your image is gorgeous.  You are not the first person to write to us with the observation that the Wheel Bug looks prehistoric.  The Wheel Bug is the largest North American Assassin Bug.
