Very strange insects. Very nice composition. Good POV and DOF. Nice natural colours. I do not think I would like seeing too many of theim either.

Very very interesting shot of these tiny creatures which can be mistaken for fungis. They look awesome with those long limbs. Try to find out what they grow up to and what damage they do to that plant. Great educative post. I like your chosen POV to portray them and the diagonal composition. Kudos.

What a curious thing!! I was looking intently searching for the bug and could only see a strange kind of fungus. Well, I thought so. Now I know it is an utterly new kind of insect to me. How funny and beautiful they look all together!
A marvellous new document for TN and Nature lovers.
Thank you very much for sharing.

Excellent sharp and well-composed capture of these pests.
These are known as Mealybugs, which agrees with your classification. They are often a severe pest on citrus trees.
Thanks for sharing,

I have never seen anything like this. I've heard of Mealybugs but never saw one. Amazing little things and you show them off so well with great details. Makes a very pretty picture.

This picture was found by me thanks to your recent presentation. It is simple great! First because you showed a very unique and not very popular insects (even if amazing in their shapeses and structures)!
I have never seen these insects before you presented them here :)
Bravo and thank you a lot for interesting entomological lesson!
