Milkweed Assassin Bug nymph  - Zelus longipes

Milkweed Assassin Bug nymph - Zelus longipes
A.D. Barnes Park Westchester, Miami-Dade County, Florida, USA
May 29, 2010
Size: aprox. 15 mm
Here's a nymph with the unusual white leg pattern (first pic not submitted from Broward, we are the county to the south). It has a prey. I've submitted an adult found at the same time in same location also with the same white pattern.
