Yes, I can hear you all saying, 'not ANOTHER shield bug'! I can't resist taking photos of these pretty little bugs, and when I saw this particularly beautiful one yesterday I had to take a few pics.

Such a neat little bug with lovely markings. What does it eat? I have no idea, so with many arround, just hope it is something helpful and not your plants! Another fine capture.
