GREEN SHIELD BUG

Adult shield bugs will hibernate in leaf litter and emerge in May to feed on plant sap.

Just looks like another leaf!

Striking capture, filled with beautiful colors.!! Well done my friend. I know how tiny this beautiful bug is and you captured it so well.

It's insane to see how a simple bug can cammoflauge themselves to look identical to a plant. Amazing. You've captured the same colors of a plant as the rodent.
