Macrosiphum euphorbiae

You find some really cute ones
Dressed in their spring finery, no doubt.

They seem to love daffodil leaves!
I've been seeing tons of cute groups of aphids with individuals in different parts of their complex life cycles. Here, a winged aphid sits with a non-winged adult and many little baby aphids.

Ah, good tip!
I'll check daffodils. The variety of these critters is impressive.
