Wheel bug

Arilus cristatus


Only the second one I've ever seen. They must have recently moved north. I have one wheel bug sighting already but wanted to get some better pictures this time around.

Noted, and thanks! This particular bug really brings out the amateur entomologist in me! I love these little guys...

I think your second picture put in the first spot would draw more attention. Nice Bug!
