Syromastes rhombeus is easily recognized by its diamond shaped abdomen extending well beyond the edges of the folded wings. It can be found on heaths and dry grasslands and also in open woodland if the soil is well drained.
"It can be found on heaths and dry grasslands"
Easy for you to say, Carol.
No surprise that you can find it!
A very dignified name for a very dignified beastie. You have done it justice in these shots.
It sounds like a condition you get as you get older Carol, a magnificent set though Carol top class.
A brilliant capture, with a wonderful composition (I like the way its bum fits into the lower right corner!).
Those are stunning Carol. Its back looks like a Roman mosaic, fabulous.
Superb shots - such detail in his 'armour' too.
excellent Carol V2 brought a smile as well pov spot on
A beautiful little creature Carole and three really beautiful images of it from different angles. A difficult decision but V2 is my favourite.
A lovely beastie Carol, well captured
Your ability to spot these little creatures is amazing, Carol!
Three excellent close up images.
3 excellent close up images Carol
Nice wing pattern, stylish antennae all captured so well in V1, Carol. I hope it is a rare species of juice sucker. - Raja.
Excellent set Carol,
How on earth you manage to find so many different kinds is a mystery to me Carol but certainly provides some stunning shots.
Super bug Carol - what a great shape.!
What an unusual critter, great images Carol
Wonderful insect expertly captured Carol.
Detailed to perfection Carol.
Another new one to me and very well captured, Carol.
Stunning detail and what a lovely pattern on his coat.
Great work as usual Carol.
I take it this is a Grecian 'beastie', Carol? It would frighten me witless, if I found it in my garden (or... heaths and dry grasslands and also in open woodland...) in Scotland. The size, I hope. is due to your expertise in Macro Photography and not something out of "The Day of The Triffids"?!
It is, of course, excellent photography, of which I am profoundly jealous (having never even looked down a macro lens!).
V1 shows him off to perfection. What interesting wings and shape.
Oh my my too good a set & write up.
V1 is stunning with the pattern on his back.
You are quite a Bugs-Bunny Carol . Is there a common name for these? All I come across are ladybirds and garden spiders!!.
Merry Xmas and a Happy New Year.
He looks like a cross between a moth, shield bug, and one of your clangers, Carol! Great set, and V1 has to be my fave
Love the shape - looks as though it is all colours of the rainbow too
An unusual shape indeed Carol !!

--- I agree with Colleen! --- Jukka.
Three excellently detailed images Carol.
What a bejewelled beauty.
A strange looking creature but one which you have captured magnificently Carol
Great shots !!.......new variety on me ??
3 of the best here Carol. Thank you so much for your award
FINALLY managed to open your pf
Fascinating bug! Particularly the shape.
Excellent captures, Carol.
Excellent captures of this interesting insect, Carol ! Thank you for offering us the chance to learn and know about it!
Three great images
Like the tight crop here. Great details. Your knowledge about these creatures are amazing.
It's almost cute! In V1 it's sparkling - maybe something to do with the diamond shape!
what a lovely dotted on your shield bug. Yo got me wondering now we got one of that shape but it has no polka dots
wish you a happy Christmas and a better new year
