One day during dinner, a weird bug landed on our window. And started doing something very strange.

assassin bug molting

The orange bug molted out of the black exoskeleton. I was amazed at how much bigger the orange bug was. I bet he felt better.

We had Heidi go get her magnifying glass (thanks goes to our late Grandpa Sorensen).

I found a bug identifying website, which helped me figure out it was called an Assassin Bug! An assassin bug was on our window! I went out to take pictures of it! Apparently their bite is painful to humans. Yikes.

Ugh. I’m all itchy now.
