Harlequin Bug

I found one of these this morning, enjoying the Lavender…….it’s proper name  is Murgantia histrionica a common garden insect that can devastate cauliflower and broccoli plants if in large numbers.  This is the first one I have seen this year – I think it looks very smart in their orange and black livery.
