Green shield bug (Palomena prasina)
This common bug has a flattened, shield-shaped body, as the name suggests. It is bright green in colour with delicate flecks of black that look like small puncture marks. In November, the insects darken in colour and spend the winter hibernating with a dark-bronze colouration. Although the sexes are similar in appearance, females tend to be larger than males. Like all bugs (Hemiptera), the green shield bug has specialised sucking mouthparts, which in this species are used to feed on plant sap. This species belongs to a sub-order known as the ‘true bugs’ ...

hello Jiri,
very nice sharp detailed macro in beautiful saturated colours. A bit tiny in the frame, but it's all there.
