A mischieveous little shield bug made its way onto my stem of lilies I have indoors, and perched itself on top of one of the buds, giving me the opportunity for some pics! His body and legs were covered in the orange pollen and he spent quite a while on the top of the bud trying to clean himself up!

I hope everyone had a great time this Christmas.

Three super macro captures Carol. This little bug must be quite tiny and the detail on him is very clear. V3 for me too as I love the texture and deep orange colours of the pollen on the stamens.

Liked number 2 best as i thought it was a better view of the bug. Able to see its eye - assume it is the eye(s) anyway?

Hi Carol,I think no.3 from this set,shows just hoe well these little dudes are made for there invoiriment.
The other reason was that when i say it first it reminded me of a rock climber.
Great capture.

Three super close ups, they must be good as I see Bugs Bunny has given them her seal of approval
