Immature Ambush Bug

1/320s, f5.6, 200ISO, autoWB, 90mm Tamron macro + extension tube.

I came back from yesterday’s trip to the south side with a bag full of flower heads from the wild parsnip (so that the seeds don’t propagate next year). When I looked inside, it was crawling with predaceaous flower bugs (Hemiptera: Reduviidae: Phymatinae: Phymata sp.). There were also some immatures (pictured), which have a spot on the abdomen that is later covered by developing wings.
