Good grief! That's an absolutely spectacular insect, nicely captured too! Why can't I ever find bugs like that? You've given me extra determination to look even harder though... Smile

Beautiful insect, great capture. Looks like stained glass or a Tiffany style work of art.

That's bonkers, great pic. As I live within 10 miles I should really go look at my rhodies :p

Great pictures! If anyone is interested, lace bugs are very common and are seen on the undersides of leaves of various deciduous tress in my experience. They can also turn up in great numbers if you use a sweep net in a field.
They are small, but that is not a challenge here.
