I have never seen a bug like this
need to ask my daughter to get her lab partner to ID it for me
did not seem to be a stinging bug
but I sure did not want to find out either
I used my macro lens
needs an edge at the back of the bug
other then that I thought was pretty good

looks like a cross between a wasp and a fly, haven't seen anything like that. I'm still waiting to hear back from various places about some wierd moth thing had come in one night.

I'm not sure whether to say eewww or wow. Nice capture of a strange looking creature Sandra, I'm also curious to find out what exactly it is.

I will write on here if find out
Really great macro shots Sandra.
I do not know what this bug is either.
In #2, you could bring out more detail I think with a touch more exposure, but before trying that, I would use Shadows/Highlight in PS.
PS That does really look like a long stinging thing at his rear! but he does seem to have the characteristics of some sort of fly :confused:
