The Ambush Bug

 I was walking in the field off of Ship Road and saw a butterfly on a thistle blossom.  I started taking his photograph and realized he was not flying away.  I got closer and realized he had been ambushed by the Ambush Bug.  He's a tiny bug with giant forearms and pinchers that can capture prey many times its size.  Here he is side view, front view and during the ambush. Click to enlarge and really see that bug!!
