Dillwig

Forficula auricularia.  Common Earwig.

I was finally able to get a good angle and watch it for a few moments before I took this photo.  It turns out that they were actually eating the flowers.  Nom nom nom.

My brother and I had been noticing these for a few weeks.  They seem to have appeared after the dill had flowered.  We’d always find at last a half-dozen hanging out in the dill at night, but could only guess as to what they were doing in there until I was able photograph them.
