Default "have i got food on my face?", "dancing fly", and "shadow puppet"

#1 how embarrassing


#2 dancing fly - was jittering around like a jive dancer. trying to impress the ladies?


#3 flash batteries ran out. didn't realise til later. quite liked the way this one turned out despite that, although just missed the focus at fullsize.

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
Mark
