I noticed this tiny critter as I was photographing this thistle type plant. Its about 3mm in length, any suggestions?
No interactions present.
Yeah it does look a bit too fluffy. That plant is an impressive structure, the flowers are yellow and there is a strong resinous smell from the plant, I had a feeling that it just wasnt right for a thistle, I should post it in plants.
There are a couple of aphids low down amongst the flower buds so I tend to think the white one is an aphid too, but dead and with fungus - though can't be sure.
Thanks Alan, it would certainly make sense. It looks like it isnt going anywhere fast.
