I chased this bug all over the plant. He kept wanting to go to the underside of the vegitation to get away from me....then I caught this quick shot.

Thanks for looking.

I cast a second vote for Box Elder Bug. If you've got a Box Elder tree anywhere nere your house, you've probably got an infestation of these bugs. They live and breed in the tree. The only way to get rid of them is to cut down the tree. Been there, done that!

Luckily this is in the yard across the alley from us. The only one I have seen so far. They can be pests. Thanks for stopping by calr.
