I've no idea whether this insect is a "beneficial" i.e. "good" insect or a harmful, therefore "bad" insect.
I have a strong suspicion that the concepts of beneficial or harmful are related to what we Humans regard as good or bad for Us, rather than some totally "objective" rating outside the Human domain.
Anyway: I now think that for a long time I have definitely been "bad". I have always respected the insect world, but never paid much attention to it. But now, having more time to reflect and also benefiting from a camera with macro capability I am beginning to think that perhaps I ought to apologise to the insect world.
I don't know what this specimen is. But I see that it is wonderfully made and not unlike me. It has a head, with two magnificent eyes. It also has a cleverly made "armour-plated" body (not at all like me). It's attractive, with excellent dress and colour sense (just admire those Italian-style padded shoulders); exactly like me!..........So, Yes: I would like to think that it and I could be friends and agree.
