Two-spotted stinkbug (<em>Cosmopepla bimaculata</em>) nymph, on Thimbleweed

Two-spotted stinkbug (Cosmopepla bimaculata) nymph, on Thimbleweed

This tiny nymph was in the Backyard Garden, and when I looked at the thimbleweeds the following day, it was still there, though it had moved to a different seed head. You can see the two black spots on red, which in the adult are reversed, red on black!

A lovely shot, designer camouflage, one might think. V
