Gosh…seems like I’ve been away for ages!

I’ve just caught up on your pfs and now I’ll upload this little fella I saw recently. About 1.3 – 1.5cm long. Doesn’t he have some pretty colours and patterning??

I uploaded a different picture of this guy many uploads ago…he was trying to pull a petal over himself with his hindleg.

He seemed less grumpy this time and let me snap away Grin

V2 is the uncropped image.

Isn't he cute, Andres, but I hope he's not going to chomp his way through your beautiful plumbago Sad. Super captures. Carol

Lovely colours on this beastie but it looks as if he's already started on your plumbago. Sad I like v1 for the close up.
