Chrysanthenum Lace Bug

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.
