You should have shouted "it's behind you on the left" then it would have been put out of it's dilemmaWinkWink: how nicely the red bug stands out against the greenery, Jenn.
No camouflage for this chap.

Red and green.....the perfect match. He must taste really bad to be flaunting his colors so.
Is he the same one that eats my lilies?
