Default Ambush bug, the name says it all...

Ambush bugs are aptly named. Like some creatures, lizards for example, the ambush bug can camouflage itself and lie in wait for prey. Beneath the head is a long piercing apparatus called a rostrum, which injects tissue dissolving enzymes into the prey and then the ambush bug sucks out the dissolved tissue much as one would drink a milkshake. Here a bee, it seems, has found out the hard way, how well the bug can hide itself.
