Green Shieldbug

When I first saw a Green Shieldbug, busy climbing a very green plant, I was impressed to see how nicely nature had made it almost invisible. When I saw these two carefree bugs today, I had to lower my level of being impressed…unless we are dealing with feeding next step of the food chain. On second thought, I am impressed again.

    Altogether impressive, those little bugs. Perhaps their major predators are green/pink colorblind.

      I was thinking the same thing, – or maybe their enemies are? I read, BTW, that they can make a very bad smell to protect them self. I find this knowledge very useful, having the habit of bending down to smell the roses.

    Nature is well made, isn’t it? each insect or animal or plant seems to have its own means to mark its territory and defend it. A bad smell can be very dissuasive indeed😉 Lovely picture nevertheless.

      Thank you for writing to my not very active blog Isa. As so often before, you made me make a new post, finaly, thank you for that.🙂

    You are still making beautiful photos, my friend. I have your collage on the wall in my new home. I think of you every time I look at it.🙂

      That was a nice comment to find, thank you Babs, so good to hear from you, and to know that you have enjoyed the collage for so many years. I have told you this before, you were the first person to send me a nice and detailed compliment about a blog photo, and I remember how surprised I was to read it. And glad of course. Thank you for this, which was really encouraging. I wish you a nice Christmastime.
