Does anyone know this little fellow?

Hi,

 

 

I found some dozen fellows like this one on my doughters playground in the garden.

 

The green body makes me feel a bit more confortable as it seems to tell me he likes clorofile instead of blod.

 

Anyhow just in case, can someone of you tell me what bug is this and if it is safe for small children (7 year's old) to be around?

 

Thanks,

    It's an aphid (greenfly), Megoura viciae, the vetch aphid, I think. Search the plants near to where you're finding them and you may find the colony. I don't know what they feed on apart from vetch.

     

    Harmless.
