Huddled Together


Green Shieldbug (Palomena prasina) – Although these three are hardly green, for they have not long come out of hibernation and are still sporting their autumnal colours. I took these after venturing into the back garden today. The sun was bright and cheerful and very inviting, but it was very windy and cold, so I had to wrap up. I was only out there for around ten minutes before I was forced back indoors to rest. It is such a frustration when the mind is willing but the body just can’t. At least I managed to get a few shots off, and here is one of them … oh yes … the green bugs which aren’t green … but they will soon be with the advent of spring.

  1. Great macro, Pete. Glad to hear you were able to get outdoors in the fresh air. It must have felt heavenly after being restricted indoors for so many months 🙂

    1. Thank you, Vicki 🙂 Yes, it is nice to get out even for a few minutes. I do try to walk a little even if just a short way to keep my blood pumping, but it can be so tiring. Spring always brings the need for me to get the camera out and get out there, but I guess I will have to be patient, and hopeful 🙂
