Green Shieldbug - adult in autumn colours

I go from brown in summer to blue in winter, whilst they go from green to brown.

    Know what you mean... in my case it's blue and purple... dratted steroids!

    It's a lovely picture. I haven't found any brown green ones yet, although I saw one with brown patches on its shoulders the other day.

    I see few in autumn - but lots in spring. That is when to look out for them.

    colour and texture are great on this.
    We have a frost here tonight and central heating on the blink so I could be a bit blue too tonight.

    That's a nice find. Not seen any in winter coats yet.

    Lovely! Could almost mistake that for a forest shieldbug, what a dramatic change!!

    I have been seing Sloe, Hawthorn, Green and Birch ones but all are pretty much in normal colours so far will keep looking! Beautiful shot :-)
