[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
I saw this small hemiptera crawling along a small creeper under the canopy of shady tree.
The result of using flash is the dark background.
When it grows bigger it does not retain the red colour, instead it becomes green.

Hemiptera (pron.: /hɛˈmɪptərə/) is an order of insects most often known as the true bugs (cf. bug), comprising around 50,000–80,000 species of cicadas, aphids, planthoppers, leafhoppers, shield bugs, and others. They range in size from 1 mm (0.04 in) to around 15 cm (6 in), and share a common arrangement of sucking mouthparts. Sometimes, the name true bugs is applied more narrowly still to insects of the suborder Heteroptera only.
