One of my favorite little critters was spotted again in the garden on 4 July. I haven’t had a chance to post the pictures to the site until today. It’s got the only gears found in nature in it’s legs and it’s got a blue brush sticking out of its back end. How cool is that? It’s such an amazing looking little bug. Very steampunkish.

The Issus coleoptratus nymph has to be one of the coolest insects ever! They’re among my favorites in the garden. Their legs contain the only gears known to be found in nature! And they have a blue brush sticking out of their back end. They’re definitely a very steampunk-ish looking bug! I was happy to see the first one of the season in the garden today. I’ve never seen one of this light color though. It must be a newly emerged one.
