Two weeks ago I found an insect on my window sill that was incredibly well engineered and beautiful to look at. It’s head almost looked human and the antennae were marvelously curved. It’s abdomen was long and had a barbed tail that was as long add the body. My Facebook post of the photo I took of this creature yielded a description of what it is Black Ichneumon with Red Abdomen. They lay their eggs on the worms that eat corn. They are one of the good guy insects. http://somethingscrawlinginmyhair.com/…/black…/ My friend and great illustrator Bob McMahon provided the info. I was so taken with this guy I sketched out a drawing brought it into photoshop and created this picture. One never knows where inspiration comes.
