Stilt Bug Nymph
Big deal, huh? Fuzzy photo of a little green thingy. Last spring I saw my first stilt bug and was smitten with its long-legged grace and thin knobbly antennae. It would seem reasonable and exciting to think this little guy (my 2nd stilt bug) is the same species as, or even the progeny of, the adult seen in this post. Stilt bugs are true bugs (as opposed to dirty rotten scoundrel bugs) in the family Berytidae. There does not seem to be an abundance of information on these insects.
