Front view - up close and personal!
I found this bug in a parking lot in Bozeman, MT after a night of heavy rain & snow 5/23/07.
Found in a parking lot. Image shot while bug was in water filled container.
Same bug(alive) with scale.
Giant Water Bug Beak. No wonder the injection is painful.
Captured from our dirty pool, in an average sized Sherbet container.
Accidently stepped on late at night in Dieppe, New Brunswick. Had no idea what it was.
Found this under a streetlight. It plummeted down about 40 feet and hit the ground. I knew it was big by how loud the smack was!!
Found this (I think) water-bug today by my door Just under 2.5 in. 7/8 in wide
My kids feel this water bug on a trampoline in our backyard. We do have a pool so I imagine that's why he was in our yard. What do I do with him I don't want to kill him
