o0o they are saying around here that because its not been tooooo cold
that insects are starting to appear and the birds are finding food easy ..
not sure I agree with them about that ... no bugs around here that is for
sure ... if its true though ... and they are being eaten early ... there will be
a lack of food for their babies later ... whatch out green bugs ;-) and he
is a fine macro specimen indeedoOo

Beautifully done., Shield bugs are delightful, and great for the photographer as they tend to keep still, unlike bees and butterflies!
