The wheel bug is a “Carnivorous Assassin” Bug. It impales its prey with its large proboscis. Sometimes it impales humans too.
I found this guy hanging out right outside our back door. I ran to get my camera, feeling a bit like I did when I first started using a DSLR in 2010. I spent time trying to get the settings “just right” which I haven’t had the mindset or mood to do this year. Being bipolar and off meds for a few months, I became depressed and hypomanic, a painful combination. It’s been maybe a week or so that my meds started getting adjusted and kicking in. I am starting to see the wonder and beauty life has to offer again!!
