Rhinocoris iracundus
Arthropoda / Hexapoda / Heteroptera / Reduviidae
Insect belonging to bedbugs. It is a typical predator hunting mainly on insects which are caught by its front legs and their interior is sucked with a long beak. Rhinocoris-iracundus can make twittering sounds by rubbing its beak against the trench placed between hips of the front pair of legs. Be careful!!! It can sting a person. Most of its species lives in the rainforests.

Ciao Luciano, gran bruito ceffo da evitare, ma la macro è bella e la posizione non era facile per tenerlo tutto a fuoco, bravissimo, ciao Silvio

Bonjour Luciano,

La branche aide au cadrage de l'insecte. La prise de vue rapprochée permet de voir les détails de l'insecte la Réduve irascible. La lumière fait ressortir les couleurs. Bonne journée.

Yes, it is not that easy to shoot as many times I failed there but you did this well by covering the both antenna, nice catch.
