Very interesting insect I found yesterday in my garden. I have never seen this insect in the past, I would have remembered. This insect has what looked to be little red/orange balls at the tips of its antennas. This Insect could not make up its mind which direction it wanted to go. It would go here, then there rather quickly. Luckily I had my camera.
