Wicked looking bug. Interesting that they are bright red, i.e. not camouflage effort. Nice work on the macro details.

I see these assassin bugs all the time around my place, Charlotte, but never have seen them actually killing something.

Thanks Betsy & Eileen!
Yeah I read about them last year & they can even kill lizards. I would guess a baby lizard or else it would be lunch.
