Thorn bug

Umbonia crassicornis


This is the first picture of a series that shows the little bugs coming out and then getting to mature insects. It happened at my backyard in a Mimosa tree.

Congratulations on your SOTD - what a marvelous part of your two-month observations!

Thank you, friends, all credits go to mother nature, my only work was making 'click' =) . Because this happened at home I made a whole series of the insects borning and then of the nymphs molting into mature insects. It all took 2 months and I hope to share a couple of the more representative pictures in the coming weeks.

Thanks for the attention and comments, PN rules =)
