September CMMC Dark Greens

Cee Neuner’s Midweek Madness Challenge (CMMC) this week is for dark green colours. Those of you who follow me on Twitter may already have seen this photo. It was posted for the #WildWebWednesday hashtag, where people, who are interested in wildflowers post photos of creatures and organisms which are dependent on them.

Nymph of green shieldbug seen on 31 August in our garden

From one of the botanists on Twitter (Moira O’Donnell) I learned that this was not an adult shield bug, but a nymph of the green shield bug. Rather handsome, don’t you think?

There is an adult shield bug here and more dark green here.

Don’t forget to visit Cee’s blog for her photos and links to those of other participants.
