I don't think this pretty shield bug had noticed who was lurking beneath him
Two superb captures, Carol. Excellent detail and colour
Oh wow...didnt see him lurking there for a minute...a scary little spider....great shot Carol...the shield bug is magnificent in v2
Brilliant images... great colours and detail on the bug, looks like the spider will have to wait a while longer for lunch
The spider looks like it's been in the wars already Carol.
Lovely markings and great to get them both together.
I too almost missed the spider! Superb photography Carol.
Lovely shield bug!
A very well observed, composed, exposed and captured pair of entomological images capturing this wonderfully ornate Shield Bug at his very best Carol.
Now that's a beautiful shield bug!
Two superb shots, Carol, especially V1
Do you reckon the crab spider will attack the shield bug? Or is the bug out of its league?
Had you not pointed it out, I too doubt if I'd have spotted the spider, Carol: hope the big fella got away again OK.
Such a pretty bug....
stunniong shots especially v2
2 beautiful shot of this wee stunner Carol. V1 is excellent. Moira
Brilliant detail Carol, I love v2 especially
What a beautiful shield bug Carol, especially well shown in V2.
A rather handsome beastie. He's got his best regalia on.
OMG !!! I didn't see the spider !! Just had to give you my award. I am amazed at your insect images Carol.
Two excellent captures Carol. A very photogenic shield bug and a shy spider! A
Love the close up in V2 - even ID'd it properly as my granddaughter is looking with me.
She says the colours remind her of a butterfly.
What fantastic markings and what a shot!
Come in to my parlour said the spider to the fly! another awesome macro capture Carol.
We have a similar theme today Carol ~ impressively detailed close-ups.
Two beautiful captures
V2 for me but both shots are excellent.
Both great shots, Carol, as usual.
Oh, Oh.....there is danger lurking.
This is a marvelous image of nature at her best. Such colors....how beautiful the little creature is.
Great captures Carol, V2 for me
Beautifully marked insect, Carol.
Two superb captures
I was scared to open V2 in case the shield bug was caught in a web. But no he wasn't. He is very fine and beautiful. Great shots Carol.
Two fine captures - that spider is so well camouflaged in V1!!
The light in these images is gorgeous and the colours of this bug are stunning, Carol! This is a great macro photography!
2 perfect images Carol.
2 great images Carol, their shield looks like Orange peel
Oh what a lovely shield bug Carol - hope the spider went away!
Superb !!!.....what a colorful chappy !!
A winner set.
The bug stands out a treat - I trust he didn't end up a treat
+5C and right miserable today - to coin an old phrase rizzen

Hope she's survived the encounter? Gorgeous macros Carol! Superb work...
