The wind was blowing all sorts of things today. This was the first one of these guys I have seen in the valley.
The brownish yellowish bug
Saw a yellow colored Bordered Plant Bug on a leaf at a time when flood waters had created a deep disturbance in the ground. Appeared to be almost an inch long and fully grown. Unsure if male or female.
Although I had not learned until later on, but I had also seen a nymph of the same species that day. It was uniformly black with a single red spot on it's back, about a centimeter long, walking across the gravel.
