on the trail of the cow killer

I followed one of these around in the parking lot after work today. The orange/red color was so vivid, I couldn’t rest until I got a good look at it. I wanted to capture it and show people, but now that I’ve read up on the Velvet Ant (aka, “The Cow Killer”), I’m glad I didn’t go after it too vigorously!
