Re: Communal Dragonfly, Butterfly and Insect photo thread

Late Season Green Shield-bug

I took these with my Olympus 50mm macro, not knowing how long the bug would remain. It was on a very pale yellow Gladiolus flower. I subsequently realised that the bug was not inclined to move from the flower or its stems and took the Laowa shots I posted yesterday.

The first image has not been cropped, the others have and show a sequence when the bug opened its wings and folder them away again.

Olympus EM-1, (aperture priority), Olympus 4/3 50mm f2 macro, f9, hand-held.

Harold

The parasite is Praon. The cocoon is unusually dark.

Thanks for the info Harold. I am not sure how long it had been empty but I have dark examples in some images.

Red-Legged or Forest Shield-bug Pentatoma rufipes

You need your imagination to see any red in the legs but that is its name. this was in our garden. I think it was on a plant close to a fence. Anyway, I couldn't get in position for a head-on shot. I was disappointed but have come to appreciate the image with the bug looking away.

Olympus EM-1, (aperture priority), Olympus 4/3 50mm f2 macro, f11, hand-held.

Each image has been cropped by ca 50%.

Harold
