Shieldbug, Pentatoma rufipes I think. Looked as if it was made from burnished copper.

The image of P.rufipes on the front cover of The Royal Ent. Soc. Book of British Insects, 2011, matches perfectly.

Wonderful photos! Great poses, excellent detail and lighting.
--------------------

I've wondered a lot about the apparently shiny "polished" metallic-like surfaces on so many bugs. I gather that it's well-understood as due to optical interference effects rather than pigments or metal coatings. Yet these metallic-appearing surfaces seem so convincingly metallic...

I recently visited your flickr stream, and was most impressed by your photos of your granddaughter. She must be delightful to interact with as a grandparent.

Thanks for the comments and info.
Phil - yes the granddaughter is a great distraction but don't see her often enough ( Daughter lives in Cambridge)
