Assassin Bug

Yesterday, when I came inside to check the ID of the butterfly and bug on the Daisy, I saw a picture of the Assassin Bug in my insect book. I wanted to try to get one more photo of the Ambush Bug and went outside to see if it was still there. It was not, but on a Common Milkweed nearby there was an Assassin Bug.

I managed to get a couple of photos with this one that I thought was good enough to put up on the web. In the process, the bug crawled on my camera, on me, and on various places on the milkweed. So, only this morning did I read that the bug can "inflict a very painful bite." Oops!
