Can anyone ID this insect? I see them on my Meyer Lemon tree; there are many, many of them sucking on the leaves. I've noticed that once in a while the little birds eat them, so I'm thinking of moving one of my bird feeders next to the tree to get the birds over there...

With the way the wings are positioned it looks like a winged aphid.

Yes, that looks a lot like what I have; my problem is that I can't get a better picture because these things are super small. When I first saw them (without aid of magnification) I thought they were some type of little "inch worm", because I couldn't even make out the wings -- they look like the number "8" or the Infinity symbol sitting on the underneath section of the leaves. Nasty little bugs:mad:
