Not sure what type of plant bug this is other than a member of the larger order of True Bugs (Hemiptera). If you look closely, you may notice its long beak tucked under its abdomen. This beak can extend and an be used to stab and inject is prey with venom. The venom will liquify the inside of its prey which is then sucked up through the beak like a straw in a smoothie.

Patio Life is exhibiting at the Griffin Gallery at WinCAM, located at 32 Swanton Street in Winchester.

The exhibit features over 20 large format reproductions of insects, the Patio Life book, a 4 x 6 foot map and identification guide of where over 60 insects were photographed in the back yard.

If you plant it – they will come!
