Antonio was enjoying a peaceful hike when he came upon a curious mound of rubbish…on legs!
Careful Antonio, don’t get too close. That garbage bug might try to haul you away!

In case you’re curious, I snapped quite a lot of photos when I first discovered this bug. I reviewed the photos but wasn’t happy with the outcome. I went back outside the following day, hoping I’d find the creature again. And I did! I brought this macabre bug inside my home studio for a unique photo shoot. You might say, I brought the killer within. But I was careful not to turn my back on it for very long. 😉
