How spotted this tiny critter is beyond me, but a good find as I think it's the first hairy shield bug I have seen.
Fine detailed set, Carol.

Magical set Carol! Very well seen.... And he is gorgeous!
PS - To reply to your question on my "stone faces" - The ones in the sand are from Vagator beach in India seen during different trips, but V4 I found in a stone quarry in Portland UK. (The famous Portland Stone).
Have a lovely day
