Hard to escape this tiny sap sucking bug, ubiquitous in the East, and pesty in many cases, not given much love, but like all insects it owns and wears its colors well. Here at 10x you can see right into the omatidia that make up the eyes and appreciate a good design when you see one. Collected on Department of Defense property near Pomonkey, Maryland.
