When I first saw this from a few feet away, I assumed I was seeing a moth or butterfly feeding at the coreopsis around the pond. There was a gentle breeze and the winged one seemed to be moving on it's own.
Still, something just wasn't right...
When I got closer, it was obvious that things were not as they seemed.
This was not going to be one of those peaceable kingdom, proboscis petal probing, potentially pollinating, pretty posts.
...this is more of a painful pointy probocis puncture and subsequent slurping of insect innards by an aggressive ambush bug.
