A later instar:

I have been participating in photography in one form or other since I was very young. It has been a passion that has not left me.

Most of my photographs are of natural subjects both above and below the water, with macro photography being my favourite.

I use Nikon gear and Ikelite housings.

    Hi Andrew, cool shot! :) Great detail! :) I should have asked you what my bug was? I was chatting to Robert and he told me that mine was a nymph. I’m learning! I did a bit of googling today. Still not sure exactly what sort of stink bug he is.

    Gabe :)

  • Thanks, Gabe. I suspect yours is a jewel bug but I don’t know which one. Nymphs are usually fairly easy to tell as they don’’t have wings. In this shot you can see what will become the wings in 4-5 moults time.
