Yesterday, mid-morning I found a dead bug on the path outside our back door (see photo). About 2m away there was a live bug on the pavement edge which, later in the day, was sitting on a dandelion leaf at the edge of the path. I have a second photo of the dead one against a tape measure (about 1"/2cm long) and a third of the live one on the leaf (a bit blurry). The thing I noticed first was the silvery underside; then the hard, terracotta-coloured back and furry head, with small bright eyes.
