A slow moving predator - hard to imagine that it could catch anything. A number of assassin bug species have striped legs, but I think this is a Pselliopus species.

Canon R5, 180 +2xTC, f/16, two images stacked.

such nice striped stockings, and the surrounds is great. The stacking must have helped with the awesome dof here.
