Lovely series of captures. Suprised at #1- I would have put that down as a shield bug nymph only interested in plant sap.

Thanks Mike, Brian, and Greg.

Brian - I was thinking it a shield bug nymph also. I had no idea if they're exclusively sap feeders or not. Doing some reading seems some can feed on some pests.

Yes you are right- some are insectivores - not sure if it's exclusive or they are omnivores.

Hiya Troy,

Good series of shots, I think you'll find that #1 is a Predatory Shield bug ' Amyotea hamata '

Cheers for now
