Here is a photo that I forgot I had. I took this about three years ago when I was on a road trip in northern Arizona. I saw a strange looking bug sitting on the bannister along a steep trail and I snapped a photo of it. From a respectable distance of course. I wasn't about to get too close. Just look at that eye! 👁 It looks octagonal and very large for this insect's body. And look at those feet at the very end of those hairy legs. It looks like it has two large toes at the end of each leg. Its whole body is the shape of a helicopter! 🚁 I think it looks almost mechanical.
Here is the photo before I cropped it down to get just the insect. Does anyone reading this know what kind of bug this is? It is completely alien to me.
