Sunol regional park , California, USA May 9, 2009 Size: 3/4 "
I was surprised to see many pincher bugs on the tops of grasses while hiking through the Sunol hills . I looked closer when I saw many flying , elegant insects which turned out to be the pincher bugs . I guess it is mating season and they are trying to find mates . I have never noticed wings on this insect before , is this some mutation or do they grow wings around mating season ? Thanks for any furthering of my buggy knowledge , sincerely Beth
