Spiny assassin bug

Sinea spinipes


I never seem to be able to catch these guys in the act of taking down their prey, but only once they've caught them. This is a spiny assassin bug nymph preying upon a halictid bee. The bug was about a centimeter (1/3rd of a inch) long. Every year at least one of these bugs spends their juvenile stage in the square meter of my garden and I get to watch them grow up.
