Crucifer Shieldbug


Eurydema (Eurydema) oleracea – Also called the Cabbage Bug, this is a new visitor to the garden for me. Another one of the shieldbugs/stink bugs, but this one has a red colour form, too, which I have not seen. Double-click image to enlarge.

  1. He’s ready for battle with his armor on! What type of plant is he wandering around on? It’s beautiful and interesting. Nice shot, Pete!
