The moth caught my attention as Buffy and I walked a loop around the backyard.

I started taking pictures before I realized the moth wasn’t alive. Then I saw the reason why … an ambush bug, the cream-colored shape hiding in the flower heads in the lower right.

This picture is from an earlier blog and better shows a young ambush bug. (It soon turned the color of the flower it was on.)
