Great photos .... I'm envious of the beautiful shield bug .. they don't come in such bright colours here. All I have ever seen is brown, brown and brown. Beautiful in their own way but ... still ... brown!

Fantastic clarity and love the composition / story line of the three shots.

Three stunning quality close-ups here, Carol Smile I'd be delighted just capture one creature, but again you've presented us with two different species and in the same photo. I've no hesitation in giving these my UA - each image would be worthy of its own Wink

Caterpillar by Christina Rossetti

Brown and furry caterpillar in a hurry,
Take your walk
To the shady leaf, or stalk, or what not,
Which may be the chosen spot. No toad spy you,
Hovering bird of prey pass by you;
Spin and die, to live again a butterfly.
