Description

While a good number of other arthropods were busy clamoring around my back patio lights, this false bombardier was patrolling a backyard tree -- well away from the hustle and bustle of patio life. A cool bug with an impressive ability to spray acid at would-be predators. (I kept my distance, just in case.)
