Hi, according to my little book it's a Forest Bug, (Pentatoma rufipes).
Lives on a wide range of trees eating sap also small caterpillars and other insects.grows to about 15mm. Info taken from Collins gem, Insects. Handy little book.
Great shot.

Looks like a leaf with legs and has a lady bug on it, to me Smile But it's a great close up shot. I have no idea what it is, I have never seen a bug like that before.
Best Always,
