The scarlet-bodied wasp moth, is a beautiful insect native to Florida. Its striking adult coloration, including a bright red thorax and abdomen, and transparent wings patterned with black, make this moth immediately stand out in Florida landscapes
I took this photo at the Montreal Insectarium, and the whole reason for liking this beetle was the parts near the eyes that look like mega thick eye-lashes. Not many people would find a beetle pretty, but I think this one just looks so flirtatious!
all righty then, another bug to identify. yep, this is your 'black-ferned-antennae, black/gold/silver bug'. I could have thrown in 'six-legged' but the name was already getting pretty long - I like to be very specific when I'm naming bugs.
