Wow, these things are small (about 2.5mm) and difficult to spot. The flat shape makes them look like small patches of discolored leaf. After seeing one of the “patches” move, I thought I’d take a photo – using my camera like a kind of microscope to see the details. Then I discovered that I was actually looking at tiny and delicately structured lace bugs.
