This Just In: Weird Insect Edition

Chief Foziewisp Inspector Tallulah Mae is on the job. What is it, Inspector T-Mae?
Oh, I see...it's a Phasmatodea: a walking stick bug!
And what's this? A giant fuzzy yellow bee on that same wisteria...
And. Um. What. The. F...? A red velvet ant (oh hey, I could go for a red velvet cupcake right about now). Actually, apparently it's a wingless wasp called Dasymutilla occidentalis (rolls off the tongue, no?)...it's also called a "cow killer." Okaaaayyy...
