Found this one in a Red Hot Poker plant I was cutting back last week ..... coaxed it onto a pot of Muscari flowers.

Thanks for stopping by - much appreciated.

Inspirational macro work and processing, Brian. Terrific detail, textures, body patterning and colours of the Shield Bug and beautifully presented against the Muscari perch and subtly textured background.

Fabulous detail and colour, and beautifully composed as well.
The background is excellent. The whole is more than the sum of its parts; a wonderful image.
