Assassin Bug Nymph

This is a welcome guest to our garden.  Pest control without pesticides.  This is a young nymph taking refuge in a lily, waiting on lunch to visit the flower.  When fully developed, the assassin bug will be greyish brown and about 1/2 inch in length.  As a word of caution, handling these bugs is not recommended in that they can inflect a painful bite.
