Hairs in my eyes!

Hairs in my eyes!
When I first spotted this shieldbug nymph, I got quite excited as with the colouring, I thought I'd finally found a Eurygaster!!! Anyway, after I took the above shot, it fell into the vegetation..... I spent some time afterwards trying to relocate it, which I eventually did. Took a few more shots (below) on my hand, potted it, took it to Keith, our Hemiptera County recorder, when he pointed out that it was rather hairy! Lol!
I'd completely failed to notice that, having been temporarily 'blinded' by my excitement! I'd never seen such a pale Dolycoris nymph.... A rather gorgeous one it was too! :-)
