Lygaeus equestris, more commonly known as a harlequin bug, is one of my favourite insects. It is a seed eating bug, but will also suck the sap from plants, eventually killing the plant.

What a colourful he is, Carol. Another top quality set of images - like how he's eyeing you up in V4!
Thanks for your vote & comments on my 'Venetian Alleyways' upload, very much appreciated. I'm only going away on a coach break to Windsor, so doubt it will be warm! I've never been to Windsor before, so looking forward to it. There's a couple of outings included - a coach tour around London, and a day in Oxford, so hope to get some new piccies!
