Yargh, bugs!

One fun thing about organic gardening is that bugs are everywhere! They're fascinating creatures, and it's fun to see the good ones, the bad ones, and most excellent to see the good ones eating the bad ones.

Here are what I assume to be some sort of nymph. My first guess is assassin bug nymph, but I was unable to do more than two weeks in my entomology class before my health caused me to drop. Your guess is probably better than mine! :)

I scream and run before I'm anywhere near the point of classification! Weirdbuglady on Etsy is not only the Queen of bug classification, but a swell gal as well! Good luck.

Yes! Those are assassin bugs! Excellent. I like them because they like to suck the life out of Japanese beetles.
