Four-coloured Milk Bugs at Geham

At first glance, I thought these clumps of Orange on this plant at Geham, South-East Queenslsnd, were berries or tiny flowers, but closer inspection showed them to be many tiny vibrant orange beetles.  I looked them up when I got home and found these tiny beetles to be juvenile "Four Coloured Milk Vine Bugs"  (4-Coloured Milk Vine Bug - Oncopeltus sordidus).  (Iphone6 photos)
