Green Shieldbug - adult in autumn colours

    Newer Older

    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!!
