Size: 4mm.
Voracious! White, green,large, small, winged or not, if it's an aphid he eats it. Curiously, they don't flee. Distinctive pattern. I saw one other exactly like this except 1/3 the length.

Fabulous.
This is just a great image, from clarity to composition:-) No such thing as "fast food" here, eh? Hahaha! Keep up the great work.

Thanks Eric. It's good to be back from my brief visit to New Mexico.
