Default Son of the Ambush Bug

Ambush Bug nymph on a blackberry bush. Never seen an ambush bug so i'm hoping he'll grow up and I can find him again. He was tiny so #4 shows my thumbnail for scale

What a neat find - I've never seen a white one. It looks like a prehistoric dinosaur.

Awesome shots, never even knew they existed. Those hooks on his front legs look deadly, I guess they are.
