Jagged Ambush Bug

I first noticed the dogface butterfly struggle from a distance, thinking it’s windy and it’s just trying to get some type of stability to gather nectar from the flower.!Jagged 3

Sadly and a part of nature, it was ambushed by this Jagged Ambush Bug.

The Jagged Ambush has a very unique body shape and color tones, which gives it the ability to blend with different shapes of flowers.
