UD Face to Face with an Assassination…


Not that she knew it.
The fool kept photographing
the thing on her potted hosta
because she’d never seen
anything like it before.

She could have been very
badly bitten.


A side view.

From behind.

    I think it looks more like a black-and-red ichneumon wasp.

    I agree that it doesn’t look like an assassin bug, what with that thing coming out of its butt (forgive my scientific terminology).

    But if it *is* an assassin bug, I don’t think you need to worry about it running over and attacking you. Most bites are accidental. The blood sucking assassin bugs on the other hand … are the stuff of nightmares.

    Horntail wasp?
