An unwelcome visitor at a recent barbecue! Amazing just how much detail there is in such a pesty insect!

Thanks for all the votes on my previous upload "Bug of Unknown Origen", which MUDGE was kind enough to ID as a Soldier Beetle.

All comments are always welcome.

Another rainy day here in Tennessee. No chance to get out and about for any shots today.

Thanks for looking,
God bless,
Patti
