An early instar shield bug nymph testing the warming Spring sunshine. About 10mm long.
On mature eucalyptus (Ironbark) in a local nature reserve.
Species unknown as yet..
Wow.....what a beauty!!
Thanks Rach.. it's still very wintery here so not much else happening. I should know this little guy but can't track it down yet. It'll come back I'm sure.
Great photo Mark. At this resolution the leaf is such a fascinating background, but nowhere near as intricate as the colouring on the nymph.
