Size: Approx 1 cm body
This 'bug' landed on a pizza box as I was carrying the box from the car to the house. It was patient while I transfered it to a piece of white plastic (my wife didn't approve of it waiting for me on the pizza box) and I went to get my camera. I then got this one shot and it flew away.
