Nice creature!

That's Jadera haematoloma (Red-shouldered Bug), and belongs to the family Rhopalidae (Scentless Plant Bugs).

Cheers

Thanks everyone for looking and commenting

Really nice. How big are they?
Alex I would say the largest is maybe 3/4" long. I think I would be better off with a 105mm lens. Seems you have to get realy close with the 60mm and alot of time at the cost of light.

Hary thanks for the I.D. I guess I was not that far off as I called them Red Bugs. I wil now use Red shouldered bug. Thanks
