This aphid colony was one of many that were attached to weeds growing along a city street. Yesterday I photographed one colony with a Syrphid fly
approaching it. Today I've taken more close-ups of a couple of individuals from the colony with the hope of getting an ID on the type of aphid. Is a genus and perhaps even a species asking too much? All of the aphid colonies in this area were being tended by black ants
as seen in the Syphid Fly photos.
