Hawthorn Shieldbug on Crataegus monogyna
|[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note|
|An adult Hawthorn shield Bug (Acanthosoma haemorrhoidale) seen here on the plant it is named for, the small tree with white flowers in spring and bright red fruit in autumn, called (Crataegus monogyna) the Common Haw or Hawthorn.|
Adults can be found most of the year, during the warmer months when there are leaves and fruit around from which it can suck sap they are fairly active but during the winter they will find a sheltered spot to lay up in till better times arrive.
thanks for looking

Bonita macro Robert, con excelente iluminación, buen foco y agudeza y un fondo muy adecuado.
El OOF de los frutos de atrás, producen un efecto muy agradable en la composición.
