The King Devil

King devils will be found in the fields and pastures of the country side amidst the goats beard with which they might be compared. The difference is that the king devil is taller and has a cluster of yellow flowers at the top of the stem, whereas the goats beard has but one. A variety of king devil, which will usual be found in the field amidst its more common cousin, is the devil's paint brush, looking the same but of a brilliant orange colour. Note in the first image below the presence of a spittle bug; blow on the spit and there he be, a small struggling white bug who puts out the spit for camouflage.
