Winged Aphid
The aphids are probably best known as "greenfly" on roses or "blackfly" on broad beans. They belong to a group of insects known as "bugs" or Hemiptera, the mouth parts of which are modified to form piercing and sucking tubes, the insects obtaining their food by sucking plant juices or the blood of other animals.
