A Hawthorn Shield Bug posing on top of a Hebe leaf today. I don’t think I’ve seen this variety before, a nice emerald green back.
Folded wings lower down, maybe h/she has recently hatched?
Exmoor, UK, April 2014.

INSECTS BUGS AND CREEPY- CRAWLIES

I am a keen amateur photographer enjoying wildlife and nature images taken in West Somerset and on Exmoor.
I am a grandfather and enjoy my reclusive life on the edge of Exmoor, among the wildlife, birds, and nature.
I hope to learn more skills and techniques from some of the amazing artists on this site.

    I think we have these here too, but maybe not colored that way. What a wonderful capture – they do have a medieval quality!

  • Thanks kindly friend, and I see what you mean about the medieval quality……very much a heraldic shield design on this one! Oh dear, why does that bring The Goodies to mind!! ;-) ;-)
    All the best,
    Dave.
