Bug Of The Week

For the past five days, this photo of a tiny white bug has been the most popular image in my Flickr account. I can't imagine why. It's a cool bug, but it's not a very good photo.

Fluffy White Bug On Windshield (zoomed and sharpened)

I think it may be an Asian Woolly Hackberry Aphid (Shivaphis celti). See bugguide.net/node/view/18904/bgimage. The fact that these critters were on a hackberry leaf when I found them gives credence to the thought that this is what they are.
