I found three of these long slender bugs outside one hot summer evening.
They were just sitting there on a wall. I got close enough to this one
to show you how large it is, but then it flew away. Sorry, that's more
boring than most of my bugs
. If I see them do
anything interesting I'll post an update.
I was way off on my first guess about what this bug is. I wasn't sure,
so I sent a picture to
where I found out that it's a Rice Bug. I have a lot to learn about
bugs, but I think that finding them first and then finding out
about them is a fun approach for now, at least until I try to pick up one that I
should have learned about first...
I tried to get a picture of the proboscis of one of these little rice
bugs, but none were willing to let me. The best I got was this not so
great side view:
