Thanks Loki! I've not seen one before, and had no idea what it was.

The Assassin Bug like that belonging to two dogs made Lee's job in rearing her family of Monarch butterflies very difficult. But it all paid off very well indeed with about 50 Monarchs more on the planet than before.

Below are three of them on the hand of their god.
