Another bug very well snapped. Great colour & detail Don. Your getting rather good at this stuff. I'd have been tempted to rotate the first & last images purely for ease of viewing?

Have a good Xmas & New Year.

Best regards

Looks like a variant on a shield bug but I've never seen one sporting a hairy underside.
Both the *istDS and the K5 are incurably addicted to old glass

Great pictures Don!

Are the clubbed/shaped antennae reminiscent of (our) early-summer cockchafers.

Now then, just stop it!!

The more I look, the more there is to see!

Excellent. Great colour, contrast and clarity.
