Perhaps the best known of all bugs is this Green Shield Bug, often called the Green Stink Bug. The species is encountered in gardens regularly, especially in spring and autumn. It is bright green and some 12 to 14 mm in length. The adults and larvae both are capable of overwintering. Most of them turn brown just before that. After hibernation it takes them about a week or two to turn completely green again. There are a number of other green species looking exactly like the Green Shield Bug. Most of them are not as common in Europe and absent on the British Isles. Many of these species can be told apart by studying the colours and length of the segments of the antennae.

My boys totally love these little critters... They call them the 'pizza' bug for reasons I cannot explain!!

Your macros and descriptions are always so detailed and informative and make for a truly interesting read!

Brilliant work...

An extremely informative pre-narrative supported by a very impressive macro photograph. Stunning detail, and wonderful natural colour in abundance.
