Baby Huey - Closterocoris amoenus

Baby Huey - Closterocoris amoenus
Orange County, California, USA
Big, ugly, ant-mimicing true bug on bindweed. Smaller companions are a mirid - Plagiognathus verticalis - and an aphid, who may end up being someone's dinner.

(Turns out this is an immature and looks very different when adult.)
