This is a bug that I spotted at Green Oak. I only saw him when he was warning me away.
His back is like Lady Beetle wings. They lift up in that shape. Under the camouflage tops, his back is red and metallic black in perfect stripes. It was the red that caught my eye.
He has a long head that looks exactly like a Grass Hopper. He didn't try and fly away, so I don't know if he can.
I had never seen anything like him before. Anyone know what he is? Anyone want to make something up? :)
