Clastoptera - Clastoptera proteus

Clastoptera - Clastoptera proteus
Montreal, Quebec, Canada
June 24, 2006
The 3 pictures are of the same insect, found on a dogwood bush. All the time I was taking pictures (2-3 minutes) the tip of its back was moving up and down. At the end, I safely returned the insect back to its bubbles.
