The place is too crowded...Smile

took this in the last light on Tuesday when taking the cats for a walk. A lot of shield bugs are busy producing the next generation as it is dry and windy.
For Carol: When it is wet and rainy they are busy munching my beetroot leaves and parsnips Smile

I see you have one of the same varieties as we have here, Annette, but your comment 'A lot of shield bugs are busy producing the next generation as it is dry and windy' made me laugh.................dry or wet, calm or windy, hot or cold, the shield bugs are ALWAYS at it here Grin. Super captures, though, and such a pretty species. Carol

Not sure I've seen them before Annette. Perhaps I'm not looking hard enough. Interesting set, v3 being the best imho. Grin

Your Description made me laugh, Annette! Here's what bad lovers need! They do not need to run to the pharmacy for Viagra, they simply need eat a lot of beets and parsnips and wait for appropriate weather!GrinGrinGrin
