Slick bug. Know it? - Closterocoris amoenus

This is one of those little guys that slip around the back of the plant when you're, say ten feet away. This one didn't quite disappear, but it did keep dancing away from me as I went from one side of the leaf to the other. It finally settled down - a bit - and I was able to get some fairly decent shots of this beautiful insect. From a distance, only the three large yellow markings were visible. Glad I spotted it! Wonder how many other marvels I've missed.
