Found this little guy munching away, having a great meal on a rose bush. I just let him be, because from what I'd read, they don't appear to do too much damage. And I'm guessing that must be true, because there was very little damage, and I've not seen him since. Glad I had my camera ready. Judging from the size, I'd say he's definitely a nymph.

Thanks…Yeah, I thought he was pretty incredible too. I hadn't seen a nymph before. And I did a double take before even realizing he was a bug. So well camouflaged!
