Check out what we had along the side of our pool this morning!
It apparently is a youngun, as it has not yet developed wings. Therefore there must be some breeders nearby. It's main food source is Passiflora, Passionfruit vine. And since I don't have a Passiflora, well.....
anyway, it is seriously cool looking!
In the USofA this bug is only found in Cameron County Texas, but is widely found in Mexico, also in Nicaragua, Honduras, and Guatemala.
