Three cracking shots Carol, I do have to question your title, truly, beauty must be in the eye of the beholder!

Your closeup work never ceases to amaze me, it's a whole different world!

Keep up the Stirling work!

Given the tiny size you did well to spot him in the first place and then capture such detail thereafter, Carol.

I have seen many different types of shield bugs but never knew they were hairy when young.
