Oh good to know. Once I'm on my computer I will make the correction XD

I couldn't find a common name for this one so I just went with leaf-footed bug. Lauren is correct - this one is a plant-feeder and not a blood-feeder. :-)

Hi Leah. Such a beauty! Don't worry, he is not a blood sucker, he is a leaf-footed bug from the family Coreidae.
