Orange-headed, black-bodied bug inhabiting the yard - PIC
I've done numerous searches, and since I have yet to come up with anything, I thought it was time to ask the GW population.
These bugs are around my yard in pretty decent numbers, and seem to prefer the Santa Rosa plum tree in the backyard, although I've seen them on everything from the roses to my peppers. I can't tell whether or not they're doing any damage to other crops, the the plum tree looks absolutely pitiful.
It was difficult to get a good, close, full body shot, and you can't tell very well from the photo, but they're about a 1/2" long, with a slender black body, and an orange head. They're winged, and almost seem as though they're making noises as they fly. Super creepy.
Any idea what they could be?
