A strange creature discovered at her Stoney Creek home has one local girl seeing red — and black — and learning more about entomology, or the study of insects.

Heather Estep was enjoying a recent sunny afternoon in her backyard when she spied an unusual insect.
“It was striped red and black, and it was fuzzy,” she said. “It looked like an ant, but it was huge!”

She managed to capture the bug and, fortunately, avoided what could have been a painful situation.

“I had no idea what it was,” Heather said.

Heather turned to a computer to research online about the insect and learn more about it.
