I hate to say it but I think this is another one of those sexually oriented photos. :lol::lol:

There actually appears to be two insects in that jumble, one on top of the other. This a great photo. Photo of what...I don't know.

I've seen and photographed these before. They are very small and cover themselve with trash. hence the name trash bugs.

Thanks. Mine was almost a look-alike of the one appearing in the link you provided. But, curious to know what was underneath the moving rubbish, I blew hard to push the trash bag a little away from its back and hence it appears a little clumsy in my photograph.
