Hubby and I managed to find time for a walk around the farm today - it's not too bad out there, sunny but breezy.

As I passed some leaves I noticed this tiny bug right on the tip, ready to jump! It's a Leaf Beetle (Oulema melanopa), about the size of a '0'! As the wind blew the leaf its colour changed from blue, to black to green - topped off with a little red head................ever so pretty! Smile
