The first shield bug of 2013, spotted on a visit to the beach a couple of days ago, in brilliant sunshine
Excellent and fresh Carol !! I like the profile in V2 - but all are great !! I lost a few grams just looking at these minty fresh photos [ I heard last week that regularly smelling fresh mint helps one lose weight ]
Blimey Carol. You're quick off the mark. Well captured.

The detail you have captured in these three shots is so impressive, Carol, and I do like the overall green toning across the set.
V2 is a real cracker
All excellent Carol I love the colours and sharpness in all of them.
Such attractive markings and colours. The details, as ever with your images, are superb in all three. My special favourite this time in V1 with that wonderfully "bug-eyed" look!
Dof spot on as ever carol.
Fantastic and lovely set of images,Carol,
Three crackers Carol - sounds like Xmas all over again!
I'd never heard of shield bugs before seeing your images.
wonder what the old brain will register this year?
V2 for me today. Love the harmonious feel of all three.
Great set as always, Carol.
As ever, Carol - a stunning image! I am in awe!
oh! Three Excellent macros.
Well focus & sharp.
I like your comments on my upload today.
fine work Carol
Wonderful trio Carol, excellent macro work.
This one is so beautifully patterned Carol. I love the pov in v3 - reminds me of my little bug at the edge of the leaf - I wonder what they think when they get to that edge and have to turn back
I found another of those grey mottled shield bugs in the house yesterday and have it in a jar - I was hoping for some decent weather so I could take his portrait on the bark of an oak showing his great ability to camouflage himself out in nature - on my tile floor he stood out so badly that he got caught.
A lovely set Carol, looks like good weather there too
with that lovely light
Stunning set of shots yet again Carol.
A tiro of beauties Carol.
Hi Carol, an excellent set of images and a well deserved award.. Lovely colors of the bug..
Three super captures, Carol, worth three votes, but they'll each have to share the one vote, I'm afraid...
Great stuff !!!....amazing markings........
Good stuff as ever Carol. Lou
Lovely light, detail and colours, Carol.
Three stunning New Year offerings, each filled with quality throughout Carol
Three top shots the colours are amazing
Love the colours of this wee beastie
Another decent day today +10C
What another superb set Carol, well done.
Superb detail and colour.
Beautiful and green!
Most wonderful Carol! IB
You're making a great start to 2013, hopefully in the manner to which you will aspire for the next 12 months.
I chuckled to hear this was "spotted on a visit to the beach" but think its spots were probably there before then!
Leon also made me laugh with his "what with shields and clangers you could start your own army". It does sound somewhat like an ancient battlefield.
V2 for me.
I feel it is bordering on sacrilege to pick one of these as each is perfect Carol, couldn't ask for better detail, nor would I want to!
You seem to collect these shiled bugs like people used to collect green shield stamps!!! Another fine collection of critters for us to peruse
