What an unfortunate name! Its Latin name is slightly more dignified – “Acrosterunum hilare”, a plant pest very common in North America. Common or not I had never seen one before quite like this. The bug had a determined walk but with no definite direction in mind. The photograph illustrates light fall off from flash. The background is simply too far away for the light. To shoot in natural light would have meant using much higher speeds and ISO, with less certainty of sharpness.
