Size: 1-3 mm
These aphids are the size, shape and color of the broccoli florets. They were also all over the rest of the broccoli, but easier to see on smooth leaves and stems.
In the upper left, there are also a few syrphid fly larvae that are the same long, narrow shape and yellowish color as the stems of the florets. Camouflage or coincidence?
