Shield bugs

Post by puzzledpaul »

Been a lot of SB activity here recently

Image

Scratching those 'difficult to reach' places is even more involved when you've got wings'n stuff in the way :)


Image

Considering what it'd been doing a few frames earlier (insert) ... it made me wonder what the contents had been on that occasion ... after experiencing its behaviour shown in the main frame.

(It's on a tripod leg, btw ... was packing up, placed tripod down, gone to fetch other kit and noticed this 'blob of green' ... :) .... so, ended up being a 2 tripod job. )



Image

Considering what the pair of SB's were upto ... a very unwelcome visitor ... but they didn't stop what they were doing and the newcomer flew off shortly after this 'Terry Wogan' moment. (TW is a TV/radio presenter in UK who used to have something of a 'name' for touching the knee of his interviewee )

Some great shots Paul. I like the first one, shows a lot of detail on the wings and wing covers that you do not normally see :smt023.

Thanks, Doug - yes, I was lucky to be around during the preening exercise in #1 - first time for me and only lasted a couple of minutes or so :)

Very nice Paul! :D
It is not often to see those guys putting their wings in action.
The meaning of beauty is in sharing with others.

P.S.
Noticing of my "a" and "the" and other grammar
errors are welcome. :D
