[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
This species of shieldbug is an Eurigaster, of the Scutelleridae family. The Eurigaster feeds on gramineae. I think it is Eurigaster austriaca, on a Creeping Thistle (Cirsium arvense)
Cette punaise est un Eurigaster, de la famille des Scutelléridés (Scutelleridae). Il s’agit d’espèces phytophages (Graminées, Cypéracées...), de couleur brune à beige plus ou moins foncée avec des marques sombres ou claires variables. Il me semble qu’il s’agit de l’Eurigaster austriaca sur une fleur fanée de cirse des champs (Cirsium arvense).

Hello Catherine,

I am so glad finding a new photo of yours in which you master so well the mild light. There are so many delicate color tones in your photo giving to the viewer a nice feeling of quietness. I am impressed by the reachness of fine details you are able to render in your photo as well as the good DOF you got.

Thank you for sharing,
