Broad-Headed Sharpshooter

Oncometopia orbona

Description:

Sharpshooter on hydrangea

Habitat:

Garden landscaping, rural deciduous area, Clermont County

Notes:

Fun fact: They filter a huge volume of dilute liquid through their digestive systems to extract the trace nutrients, and much of the water and carbohydrates are squirted forcibly away from the body in a fine stream of droplets, thus earning them their common name.
