Hang on I'll pull you up !!

Thanks to everyone who left clicks or comments on The Teapot Handle and especially to John for his User Award which was much appreciated SmileSmile
I picked some raspberries for breakfast yesterday and found 2 shield bugs on one of the leaves. I put them in the dish and took a few photos before returning them to the wild [ well my garden is a bit on the wild side at the moment]
So here they are having fun exploring the fruit, with just a tad of texture from the inside of a casserole lid after I had cooked beetroot in it [please don't say that I never give you specific information about my textured layers WinkWinkWinkWinkWinkWink]
Thanks for looking
Helen

I'm not sure that washing-up bubbles and raspberries are the most tempting of combinations, but the image of the shield bugs is just so funny. I'm actually seeing them as tipsy on raspberry juice and incapable of standing up properly.

I think it's had a bit too much beer and keeled over! Wink A very well-timed capture, Helen, and it does give the impression that the top one's giving it a helping hand! A cracking shot, made me chuckle, and think this has to have my UA...Smile
