Not having a yard or garden makes it much easier to appreciate aphid cuteness. :)

That's crazy Luis!

And those are very interesting aphids you found textless! Hahaha you can call them cute and all, but they're killing my poor plants!

Here are the plaid ones: http://www.projectnoah.org/spottings/768... Aren't they strange? Not as cute as your plump yellow ones though.

I've seen them on a plant in my backyard! How exciting!

Wow that's pretty amazing! I was always used to the green ones that plagued our rosebush, and this is the first time I see a different color infesting a different plant. I hope I get to see this interesting plaid one you mention! :)

Awesome color... I like aphids more and more as I discover more crazy colors and patterns. This summer I saw bright red ones and some that looked kind of plaid. :)
