John, No that one was with the 6T. Didn't even see the little buggers until focused on the flower and then noticed a lot of little legs on the stem! Jim

Good one. Did you notice their little red eyes?

Neat! Did you grab some insecticide right after you took the photo, or was it not your flower? I once took a picture of my front yard full of dandelions (pretty picture), right before I got the weed-wacker out.

Great shot of the aphids! If that's your yard wash your plants with pressure insecticidal soap from a hose end sprayer. Regular insecticides will kill all the good bugs that eat aphids.

Thanks Ted, Yes after you pointed them out ! (the red eyes). Jim

Mtngal, Yes I hosed them down good with the insecticide soap as Don mentioned. That's probably what gave them the red eyes! :-) Jim
