Bonjour Claude,
Très jolies couleurs pour cette punaise . Elle s'est posée sur une anémone de montagne qui fournit ici un décor un peu inhabituel, mais qui rend l'image intéressante. Merci et
bonne journée

Bonjour Claude,
L'image de cette punaise chatoyante perdue dans une forêt de carpelles est originale et amusante. Les couleurs de l'insecte sont magnifiques et elles sont mises en valeur par cet étrange décor. Très réussi.
Salutations

Cher Claude,
j'ai sauté cette image, je m'en excuse. C'est tout simplement un chef d'oeuvre. Mes félications, et merci de nous le montrer. Je dirai que c'est du genre Carpocoris. Il manque encore le livre de détermination de E. Wachmann sur les Pentatomidae. Et en Valais, ça peut toujours être un représentant du Sud de l'Europe.
Bien à toi,
Dietrich

Amazing how this bug is climbing thru this mine-net; like a submariner...

Very sharp, great PoV and excellent compo. Tfs,Jay
