Two rather handsome looking 'Shield Bugs' Carol, certainly very distinguishable by their shape and form. The first photograph certainly shows of their rather fine display of colour, however I prefer image number two more so because of the rich and lush green colour.

We've only just started to get these in the UK Carol, this species is native to Africa but can be found all over Europe now and has over the last few years started to creep into the UK.....If you want to find out more look up Nezara viridula - Southern Green Shieldbug.....Nice image BTW.

A very handsome shield bug !
We have no shield bugs at the moment, I think they couldn't cope with total dehydration of their food SadSad
I'd love to see some more before the end of the season.
