First of all, apologies for the lack of clicks/comments yesterday, my partner's young brother, aged 39, was found dead in bed, and my mind was obviously on other things.
Today's upload is of a very strange shield bug I spotted, I've never seen one like this before, and would love an ID from one of the experts.
Enjoy the weekend, everyone, do hope you see some of the glorious sunshine that we have here
Very sad news when anyone dies, but so young. Thoughts to the family.....Three great images, glad you posted all of them and I don't have a clear favourite for once. Nice composition and isolation. He looks massive!!

Impressive shield indeed. Must belong to some carbean pirate clan
I think v2 for me with the lovely diagonal!
An excellent trio - thoughts are with you

So sorry Carol to hear this - what a shock for you and your partner. Love all three of today's images.
Condolences to your partner on this tragic loss. Can't help with the I/D yet but I will look up some of my favourite sites to see if I can help.
Can't differentiate between the three at all
Tragic news indeed Carol
Gods House has many rooms and the young man will be made welcome.
i didn't realise there were so many variants of orange shield bugs!! if it's previously undiscovered, how about Pentatomoidea tigris carolis. Three excellent captures.
All beautifully composed, but the vote is for V3, there's something about the angle of the legs.
Deepest sympathy to you and your partner.
Awful news Carol.
