I was surprised to see this late stage nymph, two days ago, on the corner of the wall of our house. It remained +/- motionless while I photographed it. I was all the more surprised to see it in exactly the same place 24 h later.

At the end of another session it took off horizontally. It appeared to fly but, having only wing pads, it must have been a powerful jump.

This was a final instar nymph. Identifying them is difficult at any time, several species having similar nymphs. Also, shield-bugs darken as they prepare to hibernate.

We don't have any gorse in the garden but they do feed on Laburnum, which we do have.

Olympus EM-1, Olympus 4/3 x2TC, Olympus 4/3 50mm f2 macro, f11, twin flash.

The second image was cropped by ca 50%.

Thanks, Birdie.

I think most pentatomid bug nymphs have this general appearance.
