Sitting pretty!


These reddish insects are found regularly on some shrubs and plants. They have wings so  they can fly away on short distances if disturbed or if they are in search of mates. Hard to photograph as they are rather small,  smaller than a penny. This one seemed to be eyeballing me, scouting who the intruder was.

    • Thanks!

  2. As you said, who was the intruder???

    • I was, of course! I guess he was a scout.
