photographing and learning about wildlife
UPDATE: Thanks for the correction, J! Looks like this is a simple leaf-footed bug specimen, not a western conifer seed bug! --------- Duller and browner than most of the photos I've seen of brighter, redder specimens. Is that perhaps a winter thing? I can't think of what else this could be, considering I know western conifer seed bugs do live in this part of Texas. But I'm open to suggestions.
Across the United States, most common in Florida. Invasive species in Europe.
Found hanging on the window screen at my parents' house.
