Shield bug nymph Palomena prasina.

Wasp this came from shieldbug eggs, it was a bit of shock as I was hoping to photograph the shieldbug nymphs.
The real size is a bit more 1 mm - magnification was over 4 - I have to check it

Decent set. The beetle is a cracker but I'd have preferred to see it on a natural setting. Pity the focus on the shield bug is slightly out. However, the ant shot is fantastic imo.

I like shots on hands for two reasons a) I get the right size b) I know the colour is correct. The shield bug was tricky - I have just realized that I haven't seen many this year - maybe the wasps are affecting their numbers.
They suffer a lot from Parasatoids I saw this 2 years ago Gymnosoma rotundatum a fly which lays eggs on them.

Sorry for the bite but it was worth the good shot it got you! :encouragement:
It was that one which bit me. I found an injured one in the road and was worried it would get killed. Whilst carrying it to my garden it bit me.
Talk about ingratitude!
 
Very nice set, my favs are the ants and shield bug. The shot of the fly is pretty sweet, too!
 
Excelllent set.
