Black and Red Froghopper

Black and Red Froghopper
One of the joys of macro photography is that it makes one look in places that were formerly ignored revealing spectacular creatures like this brightly coloured froghopper. They're apparently quite common, but I've never seen one before.

Many thanks Mike. It just sat there in good light, so with a decent macro lens in place it was hard to miss.
