Hairy shieldbug by roachling

Hairy shieldbug

Wildplay again today, I had very little time to take photos, but I did make sure I snapped some of the shieldbugs (I love 'em!) - adult and baby hairy shieldbugs. Didn't pay much attention to the background though sadly, too busy looking at my bug!, or I'd have taken nicer photos!
We get a lot of these bugs....would love to think they are good insects that eat other bad things?

I think I threw one of these off the washing today!

Great detail!

Actually I like the effect of the background here--the sharp focus on the little bus while the humans in the background are blurred suggests to me that humans are not the only creatures on earth which deserved to be focused on, if that makes sense. Fav for me.

I love the background too! It's like the bug is watching them and we're watching the bug.

What an interesting photo, I've never seen or heard of a hairy one!
