Day 295

Day 295

My original intent was to photograph my roses, which are budding and blooming.
However, when I zoomed in close on a rose, I saw this vicious looking bug sucking the life out of a bee.
I found a dead bee on another flower as well. The insect is a Leafhopper Assassin Bug (Zelus renardii).

Fantastic close-up of nature in action. The colors of the rose make a great background. V
