King/Queen of the aphids

Possibly the least glamorous of my subjects to date, this aphid. Fittingly, it chose to land on a equally blue-collared perch, an ear plug (a Moldex 7800 no less, noise reduction 35db).
I’ve never really looked very closely at aphids. Over the years, hundreds must have met their demise at my hands, for their fragile bodies were not built to withstand compressive forces.

Beauty resides in the most unlikely places, who’d have known that the tiny winged annoyances, could have such majestic antennae?!
