Locks arithmetica(Red Spotted Spittle Bug)


There is nothing like walking up in the morning and then going for a walk in the field on a Sunday morning exploring and finding insects as well as birds . Listening to the songs the birds make. On this hot sunny afternoon I found this insect and a lot more. Taking photos takes me into a fantasy world. It makes me relax .


Medium sized 22mm very bright colours with black spots . They love sweet grass as well as sugar cane this insect doesn’t damage plants .This one was spotted in Witrivier in Mpumalanga in South Africa.
