Green Shieldbug


Palomena prasina – As soon as the sun appears these shieldbugs crawl out of their hidey-holes and bask in its warming rays. This one is still sporting its autumn camouflage suit, although I have noticed others are gradually changing back to green to blend in with the new spring growth. Double-click on image to enlarge.

    1. It’s great to be able to see the different stages of development, and hopefully you will get a shot of an adult, or will share one. They appear right at home here in the garden, and I see a fair few throughout a year normally.
