Hi Sue, Great image! Love the POV and comp here. Sharp details with nice color & light..
There are many common names for the Clown Bugs. They are also known as Coreid Bugs, Gum Tree Bugs, Sap Sucking Bugs or Squash Bugs. The adults are reddish brown in colour, with strong and spiny hind legs. There are many veins on their forewings, with orange yellow on the wing covers and a sharp angle on each shoulder. Their antennae are four segmented. Their abdomen are long and thin with greenish-yellow to brown colour on the bottom, bright orange black banded on the top, covered by wing-covers. They are slow moving. When disturbed, they move to other side of the leaf. The bug may eject smelly liquid as defence.
Well done & TFS!
This has to be one of your best yet, excellent detail, wonderful colours, beautiful lighting, stands out well against the OOF background, and the framing is perfect, really well done, all the best Cheers Rick :)

Hi Sue, splendid bug with great colors, fantastic details and excellent sharpness, very well done, have a good week end, ciao Silvio
Ha ... windy I believe,but cold ... in Brisbane? How many degrees below zero was it ?
This is much clearer than your Harlequin bug Sue.
It may not be as pretty a species,but you've captured it very well.The focus on the eye is perfect.
This is one bug we don't have here in NZ,fortunately.
good macro of this insect. Do they also have a nasty smell when they are stressed?

Hi Sue, I'm liking what I see from this new lens of yours. This is a very good macro, with excellent positioning on your part and great depth of field. Detail and colour on the bug are great and I especially like how you've pulled out that sharp detail of the bark on the tree. Very nice work.
The fine light really makes this fellow stand out!
A fine point of view and I admire the excellent details, the well composed presentation and natural colours...
