  • Shield Bug.

    Today I wasn't going to do anything photographic, too many jobs to do.

    However, my daughter found this in the kitchen of all places.

    It's a Hawthorn Shield Bug, Acanthosomona haemorrhoidale. Sounds like a pain in the ****.


    Smile for the camera.


    One more.


    I spent ages chasing it round a sheet of A4 paper trying to get it to pose.

    Thanks for looking.

    Very nice! I've recently photographed a similar Shield Bug in Australia (now in my gallery), but it does have its differences. Thanks for the effort of chasing it. It was worth it.

      Thanks Ross.

      Yours certainly looks very similar, may be a species unique to the Antipodes.
      I tried a Google search but just ended up bug eyed.

          Well, you couldn't not photograph it, that would be rude!

            I see you have used the new 60mm macro lens. I had to go out briefly this morning & annoyingly missed the parcel post today that had mine in it. I will just have to wait till this afternoon now before I can play with the new toy. I'll have a search for our bug to find details & then I'll post a thread for it (with links to each others thread). I was using S-AF with the Sigma 150mm macro lens on my E30 for my shot & it will be nice to see how the 60mm will serve me on the E-M5.

              Look forward to hearing how you get on with the lens and info on "your" Shield Bug.

                Whats going on here? Bug season is supposed to be over in northern parts of Europe!


                Peter, dip his feets in some ink next time you chase him about the paper. You can probably sell the outcome for a zillion later on at an art gallery?!

                  You're right. I think he came into the kitchen to get warm.

                  The art idea is interesting but I think I'd get more ink on me than the bug.
