Taken on 7th July 2007, on a Dahlia in my garden, Lincoln uK.
The light reflects differently to make a mean mask, good protection!
It's quite small and flat. It feeds on aphids, thrips, eggs of some other insects. The dahlia had black aphids on the stems where a whole food chain appeared!
The tail end still shows a scary face as it walks over the leaf, it says I am not to be eaten!
Taken on 23rd July 2008. Only 3-4mm long, they are tiny!
