Assassin Bug

Two clumps shasta daisies (Leucanthemem superbum) grow in my butterfly garden.  They don’t attract as many insects as they look like they should.

I found a young assassin bug when making my evening rounds of our backyard.

It had captured an ant and didn’t like my attention.

The assassin bug was still there the next evening,

and this time it had a tiny bee.

  2. I’ve never heard of an ambush bug, but you got some good shots of it. Our daisies have just started poking out of the ground!
