    A color-coordinated bug – sometimes nature is so accommodating!

  7. Gorgeous bug… you know I love bugs πŸ™‚

  8. Jim Ruebush says:

    It looks to be a member of Heteroptera (True Bugs).

  9. Great shot Eliza πŸ’œπŸ•·

    It’s funny, you would think that the bug has a little golden heart on its back!

  11. Very beautiful capture of the beauty of nature! I just love insects and insect photos! Lol ❀ And the colors here are so pretty!

  12. Kathy Sturr says:

    <3! I want to know what kind of bug it is. Any idea Eliza? If this is his head shot, he's hired!

    • Eliza Waters says:

      Ha! Of course you want to know! πŸ˜‰ It is definitely in the True Bug family, a Mirid Plant Bug, Genus Lygus, possibly L. shulli. With the gazillions of Genus/species out there, it takes an expert to be sure. πŸ˜‰

  13. That’s a cool looking bug! (I can say this, because he is not landing on me and scaring me.)

    • Eliza Waters says:

      Thank you, Sarah. πŸ™‚ Most bugs are more afraid of you than you of them. “Yikes! BIG predator!” is how they react. πŸ˜‰ I find them pretty interesting, as you can tell, and am pretty relaxed around them. I just don’t like to be lunch – mosquitoes, black flies, etc. are not welcome around me!

    That’s a bug I’ve not seen before. It looks like some exotic golden demi-god scarab from Egypt. A beautiful creature.
