Bug Rescue

Bug Rescue =) 184

While I was observing the aquatic life in the drainage ditch such as pond skaters and various water snails I noticed one individual seemingly having some serious problems in this watery environment…

After finding a stick of suitable length I managed to rescue the unfortunate insect and was pleasantly surprised to discover that it was some kind of Shield Bug, an insect which I haven’t come across for years…

After placing the stick and bug in the sunlight, there was a lot of flapping about to rid the excess water and fortunately the bug made a quick recovery. 🙂

    It’s lovely, and coincidentally I took a photo of exactly the same little creature today, some sort of a Shield Bug is it? Super photo!

    • Thank you Agnes! Not being a expert on this sort of bug, I’m not entirely sure but I think it is actually a Green Stink Bug aka Green Soldier Bug. 🙂

        Thank you for your helpful reply, it’s always good to have a name to stick on any insect 🙂 I’ll post mine tonight.
