This is an Ambush bug, one of the True bugs. Very space age. And those are mantid type graspers to the right of those vicious looking eyes. There must be several species of these and they seem to favor Eupatorium and Solidago for their hideouts.

Ambush bug of the goldenrod camo variety. With a large Tachinid fly capture. You can, with care, see the bug's face, feeder tube, legs and thorax in its perfect color hideaway.

Ambush day was this day in Cleburne county in 2015. And Black-eyed Susans were the danger flower for any butterfly to land on. Here a Buckeye is lost in the world to make more Ambush bugs. 

The Hemipteran order is large. Many families. This is a member of the Coreidae group, otherwise known as the leaf-footed bugs. Leptoglossus phyllopus is the name of this common one. There are about 80 members of the family in North America. There are seven members of this genus. None of the others have this complete light line across the back. They are mostly plant feeders and sometimes this involves some of our garden plant species. This one specializes in Cirsium, or thistle, species, but in Florida it loves to fly over to the nearby orange groves and suck young orange tree buds. Naughty, naughty.

This is likely a close relation of the above. Perhaps even Leptoglossus again. Swarmed on my Yucca bloom stalk. Breeding and interacting even after most of the blooms were gone.

This monster with the orange tips to the antenna is Acanthocephala terminalis, it is another Leaf-footed Bug. I have had them buzz up to me from nearby plants. This one was just giving me the careful stare. This is one of the largest species in this group.
