Beautiful Bugs

When I was deadheading the Mutabilis Rose this morning I found this beautiful camouflaged bug. My photo doesn't really do it justice and unfortunately I had removed from the bush before I really saw how beautiful it was.

It's magenta and lime markings matched the rose hip perfectly. I am now inspired to make a new work with these beautiful colours.
ps. please click on the image to get a better view of the colours.

Amazing colors, indeed. Can't wait to see the painting it inspires.
