Ledra aurita nymph

The extraordinary camouflage of a Ledra aurita nymph on my apple tree.



I also took some photos on my desk hoping for better shots. It was just after this one that I discovered that the nymphs can jump a considerable distance, taking 10 minutes to discover where it went! (It was safely restored to my apple tree after the photo-shoot).
