I said I would have…

…to get out and take some pictures, well I did. The next set of images are from work and Burdon Moor. The wife and I had a walk along Burdon Moor yesterday looking for Shield Bugs and she really did get the “bug”. She spotted quite a few and happily pointed them out so I could get some pictures.

The same Shield Bugs in the afternoon.

The same Shield bugs the next day. They were still on the same leaf.

I’ve finally caught up…

…I will have to go out and take some more pictures. The images below, all from work, are from last week when a few Green Shield Bugs were posing on various plants. Spiders were weaving webs and catching prey and birds were singing.
