I spotted this long legged insect taking a walking journey on a Texas Star Hibiscus plant.
Black and white antennae and a weirdly translucent body made him look somewhat alien.
Or at least the stuff horror movies are made of. Good thing he was tiny, and hopefully not an invasive or destructive beast.

Cool! An assassin bug nymph, I think.
Thanks, Steve. I had wondered about that and have seen a few assassin bugs around since then.
Superb details you have captured in this amazing insect, Ellen!
Thanks, Peter! The colors were quite something.
Both the critter and the foliage are wonderful!
What a cool-looking insect! Wonderful close-up shots, Ellen.
