I was surprised to see this insect sitting on top of a leaf. Never seen anything like this before. Very striking colours. They somehow remind me of the colours of a football club but I can't remember which one.

Does anyone know what type of insect this is ? You might get a bonus point of you know which football team the colours represent...
