Having no expertise in macro work, I shall return later to see what advice is given, and hope to learn too.
All I would say meantime is that this strikes me as being a pretty good macro shot, Annette, and one I'd have been happy with were it mine.

Looks very similar at first glance to a Ground Bug possibly Nysius ericae, but don't quote me on that! Me books upstairs and the only reason I going up there tonight is to go to bed Wink

Annette, not only is this a technically wonderful macro, it is very nicely composed and your framing is perfect for this one.

Lovely detail Annette. Not a clue what it is. My thoughts were that it was some kind of shield bug but this one you have captured seems to have clear wings, something i have not seen in shield bugs.
