easy to find if you don't blend in, think this shield bug was having difficulty finding a green leaf this time of year, not the best of shots but an interesting contrast red on green.

Hi Sue,
Wow! The contrast here is wonderful. A very unique bug and leaf combination! There appears to be some pixelation of the bug's shield causing loss of detail. Nonetheless, well seen and captured. I like the composition.

Hello Sue nice shot creative DOF that helps to direct the viewer to the bug as previous crit suggests there is some loss of detail on the bug I would also suggest a little noise in the red channel but could be fixed with a noise removal program. Rgds Necip.

Well, the only flaw is the very, very short depth of field. But I don't know...somehow it just adds something to the picture. The colour contrast is amazing. Very well done, Sue!

Apropiado título.
Bonito contraste Sue.
Saludos, JL.

Good title. This shield bug certainly shows up without the green leaves. Excellent colours and composition. Lovely textures on the leaf.

Hola Sue:
Gran captura. Hermosos colores en contraste. Buenos detales en la hoja y en la chinche verde.
