[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Hemiptera is a large, cosmopolitan order of insects, comprising some 67,500 known species in three suborders. Traditionally these taxa were treated as two separate orders, Homoptera (= Auchenorrhyncha plus Sternorrhyncha) and Heteroptera; the former name is now obsolete (the group was paraphyletic), and the latter name is falling into disuse, often replaced by Prosorrhyncha. Members of the "Heteroptera" are typically called "true bugs". The name heteroptera comes from their forewings having both membranous and hard portions. It is also essentially this same feature which gives the order its name, hemiptera, coming from the Greek for half-wing.

Members of the Hemiptera are distinguished from all other insects by both adults and nymphs having symmetrical piercing and sucking mouthparts housed in a long "beak". They are thus limited to a liquid diet. Most species feed on plant juices, including seeds, but some species are predatory (on arthropods and sometimes small animals), and a few are adapted to suck blood from mammals.

Hej Malgosia,
you have captured this stinkbug well with good details and nice POV. The DOF is a bit shallow but it works well here.
Nice colours and well composed.
Well done.

Hi Malgosia,
Nicely composed shot, excellent detail on the face and lovely rich colours. Good exposure and a very shallow DOF, but as Gert says it works here. Interesting note too, great work.

Hello Malgosia

Very nice picture of this shield bug which I think is a Dolycoris baccarum (in English Sloe Bug). The colours look very natural and I really like the pov. Very nice composition too with the bug out of centre.

Well done

Another trip back into your portfolio, Malgosia, to revel in the beauty of this very special shot of a bug with the entire focus on its face.
Whereas the rear part of the insect fades away, one is stunned at the sharpness of the eyes and face. The colours too are brilliant in this zone.
Well done and still waiting for your new post.
