Arilus cristatus - Wheel Bug nymph preying on mating Anasa tristis -squash bugs in my garden. It is hard to see in these photos, but the pierced squash bug has what appears to be a Tachinid egg on the left side of its abdomen, presumably laid by Trichopodes pennipes, which is very common in my yard.
