Now I know this bug may look normal, and may even look pretty common but it's not quite like the rest of it's gang that was surrounding it. I may be all overly excited because I just read about the boy in the UK who found a pink grasshopper - but this little yellow insect is the only one like it I have ever seen. Take a look at the bugs pictured below - they are very opaque with geometric shades of orange, black and white, they also appear to be the same exact species as the yellow guy - these bugs are considered pests to gardeners because they tend to eat most greens (mustard and turnip in my garden). They are not terriblely destructive, but they are there and for some reason I have just left them to their eating and mating frenzy all season long.
So what's up with the one little lonely yellow guy? NO one else was even playing with it - no group eating, crawling, mating - it's legs are almost transparent, unlike it's buddies who have black legs.
It also has eyes that appeared to be a reddish black color, fierce... but oh, soooo sweet. It was slightly skiddish of me but didn't run. It just barely hid behind a stick at one point, then came back out for some more pics. As you can see below, it's a really tiny insect - compared to my really small hand.So, what is Mr. Lemon? Same kind of bug as the nearby gang, a whole 'nother bug, or a pigment challenged cutie?
