Can You Name This Creature?

Week 8th to 14th July 2013

This week’s Mystery Creature comes courtesy of my three young children. ¬†They found this little guy while out bug hunting in the garden and took him in to identify him. ¬†They took this photo of him on my microscope at a 20X amplification; it was a tricky shot to get as he kept scampering out of view (we are not used to viewing live insects under our microscope)!
My three Junior Scientists identified it pretty quickly with help from the internet … do you have any ideas what it is?
