Cool Paint Job On This Bug

Moccasin Lake Nature Park Clearwater Florida Bug Insect
At first glance this bug looked somewhat ordinary and plain. Then I looked closer. Wow. So I took the very best closeup I could manage at the moment. Then when I got home and downloaded it... WOW again, times ten!

What a COOL looking insect. You really MUST click on it so you can see better detail. That is one very interesting insect. I just hope, having said such nice things about it, that it doesn't turn out to be some horribly damaging pest that is destroying the ecosystem. I snapped this little guy at the Moccasin Lake Nature Park, in Clearwater Florida, using my Nikon D80.
