Have some of these on our Rosemary and Lavender.
Not sure how destructive or invasive.
Amazingly reflective and also very still, but can move pretty fast.About 8mm lomg
This with oblique flash, as the eyes are quite shielded At x2 with my OM system lenses on a R5. F11







This at x3 on a MPE65, R5 and natural light at 1/90. Not as steady as it should be f11

Nice shots- I think they can be quite destructive if there are a bunch of them.

Thanks for your reply
I have seen about four. They are easily shaken off. I assume they have wings so can fly up to the nicer leaves. rather than climb.They are not as far as I know. native to the UK and actually do stand out and be found. I have read that they can reproduce all year round, which is worrying.

You do get them here- On the lavender bushes in the local beach garden for example

Nice shots. We get them every year. A couple of years ago there was just one individual.

I have never detected any damage, even when we get half a dozen or so.
