One of the many shield bugs to be found here in Crete is this good-looking fella, graphosoma italicum.
Don't they have wonderful markings? All 4 images are superb though I think I am just a little more drawn to V3. Another superb collection with excellent macro.
v1 is my fav, and love the sheen on the leaves, although i do like the light on the plant in v3.lesley
Excellent images with great detail and colour, V1 my fav.
Amazing colours on this little bug and a good collection Carol.
As always Carol a superb shot.

Good morning Carol - your work is amazing and the detail and colours in this brilliant shot are superb - Debs

Wonderfull images esp the last one looks so like they are kissing. I honestly don't know how you do it after my feeble attempt today to capture flowers these really are superb...
When I was a child my mum always told me, that one cannot wear dots and stripes - well - don't they look beautiful? Nature knows better!
