Wikipedia tells me it’s a crane fly or southern green stink bug (!) When I came across it on the sidewalk I stopped in my tracks. It was in Kansas, not here in Carlsbad, even though Carlsbad is further south than Kansas. I don’t know what made me look twice. I had no idea it was a bug. But there in the shadow are its head and antennae. I noticed no “stink,” just an unlikely brightness and stillness. Never saw anything like it before.
