"Aphids"

"Aphids"

Photo Information
I had a free moment earlier today so popped out to the garden.
Saw this lot climbing up, and down, a stem. Had to get really low down for this.

Nice one Paul, my wife would have been out with the "spray" before I could have got the shot

Personally I don't like them either but we keep them for two reasons:

1. my wife and I are trying to maintain an organic garden and therefore don't squirt them with anything

2. I like photographing them

I was amazed to see how many different colours there were.

Thanks for your comments

Paul
