A series of three shield bugs found in the meadow in late autumn. The cold snap has put the bugs in hiding, and I'm finding it increasing difficult to find any critters to photograph
What an intricate bit of insect engineering.
Immaculately detailed shots of this trio, Carol; excellent macro photography, could not be better.
They really are amazing little creatures. The second one looks like he is wearing an old pitted suit of armour. Great shots Carol.
3 great shots and excellent detail Carol.
Simply superb !! Your photos really opens up another world to me Carol !! I never realised these bugs were so exquisitely marked !! I am approaching her majesty to see if I can get you knighted
Stunning shots Carol are they different varieties or male/female ?
Aren't they beautifully marked ? You have a great macro lens Carol.
V1 - beautifully composed and cropped. I still love the way you accommodate the antennae in a frame.
Excellent pin sharp macro captures.
Wonderfully detailed shots Carol, I have to say v2 is my favourite, a real cracker of a shot!

Superb Carol - detail is spot on.
Carol, these are really gorgeous shields and V1 is a remarkable shot. Pinsharp, rich colour and lovely smooth background. Wow.
But shield-wise, I find the one in V2 veeerry interesting
It's so bloomin' cold outdoors, I think I'm going into hiding too! Three superb close-ups, Carol, each would deserve a vote on its own, but they'll have to share the one vote I'm afraid
Beautiful close up detail in this set Carol.
Three good 'uns, but V1 is a fine piece of macro photography
Cold today and the forecast is for extreme conditions over the next four to five days
Three good macro shot here Carol, I have one like V3. but can't lay my hands on it at the moment same sort of colours, nice set as always, working on my book this week, just popped in to check your keeping up to the mark ha ha ha, best regards Leon.
Oh to be in your meadow now that winters here. Super sheilds. Sylvia

A fine batch, Carol, I never tire of seeing these little critters. The background to V1 is perfect, and the stem is almost invisible.
