Everything else is green.

Taken with a reverse mounted Nikon 50mm f/1.8D

(after voting, to answer questions)

It kind of stuck out in the field of green. I researched it a bit and found out it is a "Graphocephala coccinea" or Red Banded or Candystriped Treehopper. About 1/2" long. Thanks for the comments!

Very interesting bug. Great detail. Would like to see the crop moved a bit to get it out of the dead center, but still a very nice shot.

Are you S***ing me?!!?! Sorry for the bad language but is this a real bug? If not, how did you get him to hold still while you painted him? 8

Perhaps cropping in more would enhance focus on the colorful bug.
