This has to be the smallest and hairiest shield bug I have ever found. He was no bigger than half my little finger nail, and was lurking in the dried seedhead of a Jerusalem sage.
An almost alien like creature... Well captured Carol.

Three excellent shots showing lovely detail
He looks rather sheepish, if you'll forgive the pun!! Cute!
What!? A furry shield bug, now I really do believe you have grown this in a lab..... weird and wonderful and great shots as well.
What an amazing looking little critter ~ great close-ups again Carol.
must be a cross between a baby hedgehog and a mini shield bug full marks for the detail and for seeing it in the first place
Certainly not the most handsome of all your weird and wonderful uploads Carol. However one cannot fault your photographic craftwomanship.
Love his fur coat and he's also has the cute factor.
great set of piccies not sure I like the hairy monster tho
Hair today, gone tomorrow . Very stange and well spotted, Carol.
Aw, he looks like a doddery old man. How sweet.
Its superb....High quality. Deep
3 super macros Carol, excellent detail in all,
I wonder if he will grow into a more handsome version! Good capture Carol.

Great shots of a weird little bug, Carol.
Your photography of this insect world never ceases to astound me, wonderful shot's you take.
Ahhhh, love him/her Carol.
I think they find their way to you because you phtograph them so well Carol.
Wonderful creature but what I like best about these
images is the harmonious blend of colours.
Super close detail of the little fuzzy one.
I especially like V2.
I didn't know they came in hairy versions! A cracking set of this unusual shield bug, Carol
Super set Carol. What a facinating little creature
Fabulous Trio Carol, excellent work as always.
A very odd creature indeed!, I must say you captured the detail in all three shots to a very high standard, like all three well done, regards Leon.
Excellent macro & very different .....
I think he looks like a baby shield bug Carol. Moira
All 3 perfect Carol, detail spot on.
The Sloe Bug is also known as the Hairy Bug, and I think this is a nymph.
See the nymph here and here and here.
He looks more like a hairy woodlouse or pillbug than shield bug, a tremendous set of close ups of this tiny critter
New one very unusual Carol some fine detail here and great macros.
Lovely detail Carol...I have never seen a a furry shield...
Never seen anything like it Carol - perhaps it's a protective coat.
Great shot Carol, hope you are ok xx
He's very cute - like candyfloss! Lovely detail.

Great set! She's so cute I could keep her as a pet... Never seen a hairy one like that! IB
