Observation notes: I thought at 1st, it was a stick on my seat. Until it moved. When i touched the seat , it crossed its 2 longer legs across its back. As i clicked away, i noticed all the " thorns" on it. This is the 1st time i have ever seen this bug. It flitted away. It was a hot, sunny, humid day, 87°f. I live a 3 min walk to the St Lawrence River, Brockville, On. My home has a variety of flowers , veggies, and an everygreen tree.
