Hi everybody,

Yet another creature that is new to me was found crawling along on my front walkway. Colourful! The red horn is especially interesting. It was about 2 1/2 inches long and could crawl pretty fast. Any help identifying it would be appreciated. I am located in Kanata, Ontario, Canada. Regards Chris.

Hi Flapdoodle,

Thank you very much for your help. Quite an interesting season here for creatures that we have not seen before. Perhaps I am just becoming more observant.

Regards

Chris
