Week 49 by Becky


This is a predatory insect that is also called an assassin bug. There was a beetle on this same plant that wasn't moving even after I touched it so I have a feeling this little guy killed it. I located this little guy on the property next door. Found him more interesting than the ant pile I was photographing before this.


  1. Ooo! Nice! The creamy background makes the pretty fern and assassin bug stand out beautifully. I like the duplication of the fern in the OOF area and the soft colors and bokeh! Very pretty! The bug is in perfect focus so you can really see the detail.

  2. Great macro! When it's blown up that bug looks really evil..I see how it got its name. Nice composition!
