The mystery sting

Zoe was just outside playing around and got stung by something mysterious.  Well, it was still in her hair, so I squashed it and pulled it out.  Odd looking orange thing with black legs.  After much googling I discovered it was an Orange Assassin Bug Nymph!   Well, I’ve never heard of that.  Painful bite, but not dangerous.  They are actually beneficial in the garden as they eat aphids and pests.  Bummer.  I squashed it.
