It was sat on a field (broad) bean plant, not causing much bother to the plant but I haven't seen one before, about 3mm long.httpslh3googleusercontentcom-_6vRpfVKiDIXtJwQ_2lHhIAAAAAAABuEA_S7Fz-aBHpceowYJtRc83U1sZ9y25Ce5wCK8BGAsYHgs02020-05-30jpg

    Looks like a large variety of aphid.  Any willow trees around?

    A trowel in the hand is worth a thousand lost under a bush.

    No willow trees around the garden, I think I can just see one at the end of the street near the beck.. It was right next to an aphid, and was a whitish colour to the standard one's green

    Have a look through these - he's probably in there somewhere!
