Look closely at this "Deadly Daisy." Do you see 3 hungry critters waiting for a meal? There are 2 crab spiders hiding on the back side of the "petals" (ray flowers) and the brown, skinny-legged stilt bug (Jalysus spp.) ready to pounce on an unsuspecting small bee or fly. Thanks to the folks at the Mantidforum for setting me straight on the stilt bug, I thought it was a thread-legged bug. I guess since there are over 1 million named insects and the fact that I'm not an entomologist, I'm due to make a few mistakes! :) I will always try to rectify my mistake if I can verify what someone else says.
