By vonny  
Took this yesterday afternoon ,this fella was on my car windscreen i was getting ready to leave the car park ,as i was just about to turn on the wipers to clean the screen when i spotted him so i grabbed the camera.
There was a lot of dust on the windscreen and very distracting so i cloned it out, i considered taking him off clean the screen and put him back but i dont think he would have co-operated lol
Hope you like it.

An intersting angle to this shot, but it's let down by nothing being really in focus.

Interesting shot of a shield bug. Think that's what it is at least. Good detail and colours. Good work on the cloning too.

Did you not see what his intentions were ?
He is a windscreen cleaner and was just about to start.
This is a well seen and taken shot !

There you go Yvonne ! Thanks to Dazil we now know that's it's a Shield Bug, but in your case it's probably his close relative, The Windshield Bug ! LOL..Sorry. Actually I like it . Good detail and colours.

I thought you captured it whilst it was flying towards you !! I put on a forest bug today, with his underbelly showing, before I saw yours.....coincidence !? Or are we "in tune" ??
