Little Green Bug
Shield bugs have to be one of the cutest bugs around, don’t you think? Some are quite green, almost fluorescent in colour and some are quite brown and dull. I’m not sure what determines the intensity of their colour. Maybe it’s a gender thing like we see in other creatures or maybe it’s a mating thing? I really don’t know.
What I do know is that when I saw this little green bug clinging to a tomato I had to grab my camera… I bet you saw that coming?… The contrast of the deep red of the overripe tomato and the green of the bug was quite striking.
My favourite detail in the photo has to be its beady little eyes. I’d like to think it was looking at me hoping it was giving me its best side. Another thing I noticed was how much finer the ends of its legs are, with what I’m guessing to be little hook-like ‘feet’ that allow it to cling on to shiny surfaces for dear life.
I also think it looks a bit like an Eric (no offence meant to anyone called Eric, it’s a cute name).
So here you have…

A little green bug, that I think looks like an Eric.
So what would you have named this little shield bug?… Don’t tell me you wouldn’t have! Just look at those little eyes begging for a name!
