Cactus coreid feeding on cactus. No flash was used in this photo. The sun was behind the edge of the cactus leaf and the photo was rotated 90 degrees clockwise. In the unaltered version the insect's head would be pointed toward the ground. Coreids (insect Family Coreidae) are plant feeders and use their straw-like mouthparts to suck juices from the plant.
