I saw these two tiny shield bugs confronting each other on a stem of grass, of course the camera was at hand!
A Excellent capture
good macro shot carol well done .rob
Superb detailed set Carol. A wonderful dof in all. Beautifully presented
Excellent close-up shots once more, Carol: I am wondering what was the outcome.....looks like a bit of a stalemate.
Excellent shots. They do look like warriors in their armour. .........Sandy
Excellent set of images, as always!
These bugs really look like "warriors in their armour"!
4 great shots. Like V3 best. Moira
Splendid work as usual Carol...Bill
Wow, you still have insects there Carol, you lucky girl! I took the squirrel capture at 0°C...Excellent set, the shields are amazing!
Gosh, they really do mean business don't they? Well spotted!
another amazing set Carol
Excellent capture. Louise
nice images,well spotted
A good job the camera was to hand. Really detailed pictures.
In V1 we can see the eyeball to eyeball confrontation. V4 - I assume that was the send-off? 'Get out and make sure you don't come back!'
3V > V4 > V1 > V2 Excellent +++++
Superb set Carol - lovely detail, textures and tones. Very hard to choose between them but I think V1 has it for me for clarity and composition.
Excellent capture's V2 for me great shot.
wonderful bug story, Carol - Very sharp and great DOF
A confrontation, seeing eyeball-to-eyeball. Excellent again
No dull life around you !
They are either drowning, fighting or b----ing ! Great detail as always .Gill
(Thanks for your comment today- I've just entered the uncropped version of that into a competition!)
V1 ... he looks quizzical ... can an insect look that way ??
Not totally convinced there shouldn't be a V5, where they are doing their usual act in your images!!! Super set again. V2 for me.
Super set, telling a story. I'm really enjoying looking at my Corfu pictures and reflecting on the sunshine. It's getting very cold here at night now. Sylvia
Confronting? I think they are flirting LOL
Good macro work,Carol.
Fine set - I think you must live near the world shield bug capital. So many shapes and colours all expertly captured with your camera. Wonderful. A
Great series, what a confrontation well captured.
Well spotted and captured.
great set of close up's
Always enjoy your Shield bugs Carol - V4 .
Just another great set of images Carol.
Excellent Carol. from the thumbnail it vaguely looked like a pot of some sort and thought you had changed direction completely...so glad that you haven't!
Super set Carol! You have quite a variety of shield bugs over there! Patti
Looks like neither of them won! Super set, Carol.
What a great set, Carol! Definitely a case of 'C'mon if you think yer 'ard enuf!' You get the most amazing variety of insects on Crete.
Wonderful set of images, v4 is my fav, well captured
Another set of Shield Bugs new to me, lovely sequence.
Another fine set of bug images. Love V1 for the crop and comp. Keep em coming.
are they kissing or starting a punch up.
Marvelous set Carol with super detail, like them all,
Beautifully observed and captured Carol.
