Phymata - Ambush Bug (Reduviidae):
Ambush Bugs (Phymatinae) are well equipped to ambush bugs (or flies, wasps, etc.). Their colouration, bright yellow mottled with browns, camouflages them perfectly with a variety of late-summer flowers, and are reliably found on goldenrods. They have raptorial forearms for gripping their prey and a sharp sucking beak through which they slurp up the contents of their unsuspecting prey.
