I wonder if this grass spider creeping up behind the assassin bug means to attack! Unfortunately didn't see it till I got it on the computer, so I missed the action! Adult insects often range from 4 to 40 mm. They most commonly have an elongated head with a distinct narrowed neck, long legs, and a prominent, segmented tube for feeding (rostrum). Most species are dark in color with hues of brown, black, red, or orange.

Kate, this was seen at our butterfly spot down the road behind Education center.
