Dear experts,

I found the attached insect in late May on a sunny day at the edge of a small forest south of munich on a leaf.

Unfortunately I only have this one photograph of it.
The abdomen seems to be transparent?

Hopfefully someone will know what this is.

Kind Regards

Askellion attached the following image:

An aphid, knowing the plant that it was feeding on might help with a better ID.

Thank you very much for your help, Maks.

I do not yet know which plant it was. But I hope to find the place again and find out which plant it was.

Kind Regards
