So your subjects come to you! Mostly they quickly disappear when I go near them. You have recorded this handsome little critter very well.

What a beautifully marked little bug Carol, the detail you've captured is exceptional. I'm amazed at the biodiversity you have in your garden, the number of different species you've recorded over the years astounds me
