Beautiful, 1 cm long, vibrant green, oval-shaped bug with yellow, purple and black patches on both sides and the rump.
Found on a juniper tree, into which it blended perfectly, at Great Bear Ski Area on the eastern edge of Sioux Falls, SD.
You cannot see the purple from the pictures, but that was how we actually SAW him against the juniper backdrop.
