A tiny furry shield bug, barely half the size of my little finger nail, popped out of his hiding place in the Jerusalem sage seedhead to say hello to you all
I've never seen such a hairy one!! Brilliantly caught, lots of lovely details!
Yes - new to me too, Carol.
We would have remained so ignorant without your superb macro photography Carol !! Excellent images !!
This one has the 'Aaaaaaah' factor in bucket loads (well for me it does)!
I echo Herman, thanks so much for teaching us about these cute little bugs.
He almost needs a haircut! Superb detail in this tiny critter.
And hello to him, he's so cute love his coat.
A great set of images Carol
ACE. What a marvellous little critter. You have caught him to perfection, Carol (What's new?!!!!). Amazing hairy detail emphasised so well by the super light. Well done.
A hairy little critter and every hair is so sharp.
Cute is in the eye of the beholder I think.....
Great images though
Superb photography Carol....not to sure about cute though....an excellent set
What a delightful little creature Carol. Well spotted and photographed.
Definitely a bad hair day. 3 wonderful images Carol and what an amazing looking creature.
Amazing detail as always, not sure he would be my interpretation of 'cute' though!
How spotted this tiny critter is beyond me, but a good find as I think it's the first hairy shield bug I have seen.
Fine detailed set, Carol.
I suppose it is cute in a way. No. 2 is the winner for me.
Aw, he needs a stroke.
Good set of fine images Carol!!
He is cute - didn't realise furry ones existed.
He looks like he has put his finger in the electric socket Definitely a bad hair day for the little fella Super macro Carol
Great set, Carol - never seen a hairy shield bug before!
Astonishing detail with this hairy critter.
Backlighting adds to the clarity.
you must have eyes like an eagle Carol well spotted never seen a hairy one before grand detail
Lol! A grooming brush is a-miss here!
Magical set Carol! Very well seen.... And he is gorgeous!
PS - To reply to your question on my "stone faces" - The ones in the sand are from Vagator beach in India seen during different trips, but V4 I found in a stone quarry in Portland UK. (The famous Portland Stone).
Have a lovely day
Didn't know they came hairy. Or is it a baby? Great shots with lots of clarity........Sandy
how weird but what a superb set
Excellent captures, great details and beautiful poses!
Well, hello to you too, Mr Shield Bug! Can't say I've seen a hairy one before - excellent set, Carol. Think V1 has to be my fave, for the pose and eye contact
What a little beauty Carol. well spotted & captured,
A most interesting and certainly charming little fella. Very well captured with pin sharp detail Carol
Great shots !!.....what a strange little critter !!
is he the cooky-monster among the little bugs? or a hippie version? any which way, he is my beauty of the day!
I have never seen a futty shield bug, great to see
