Wheelbug on the underside of Purple Coneflower in July - Arilus cristatus
Mineral County, West Virginia, USA
July 14, 2004
These slow moving creatures seem to capture enough prey to survive around here. When looking for insects that may be hiding, I like to look on the underside of leaves and flowers like Purple Coneflower and milkweed. I was glad to find this one having dinner.
