Order Hemiptera (true bugs)
Assassin bugs have very strong front legs, which they use to grab and hold prey. They attack their victim with their short, sharp beaks and suck the body fluids out of them.
1. Lightly draw the center line, and the six-sided thorax. Add the head.
2. Draw the wings.
3. Add the antennae, and the pointy shape of the abdomen.
4. Draw the first section of each leg. Which legs are the thickest and most powerful?
5. Carefully complete the legs. Draw veins in the wings. Add shading, texture, and details.
Idea! Draw another insect being attacked by the assassin bug….
