Walking Backwards
This is one of several nymphs the size of a small fruit fly, which emerged from a flat waxy mass. The waxy hairs on the tail are held as if they were antennae. The insect walks backwards and if it encounters an obstacle it quickly jumps forward escaping any potential threat. Species unknown to me.
