It seems that this bug wants to commit suicide.

As usual, I don't know the name of the bug...

I love the vivid colors and the detail on the bug. There are a bit much open space at the top of the photo, I would have cropped off a bit at the top. I hope someone here knows the name of the insect, because I surely don't. Good capture

I have some pictures of some similar bugs, although nowhere near as colourful as this one. I think they may be a species of Land bug and possibly a juvenille form.

Great picture, nice colours and good DoF. Well done.

Lovely bug Nicolas! Beautiful patterns he has :) DOF is great but maybe the yellow is too strong stealing some atention here..and i would crop the upper right too. Anyway a very nice guy!

Nice and sharp capture with colours that go well together. It's definitely a shield bug of some sort, but which particular sort, I don't know. Couldn't find a match for it in Google pictures.. I've seen reddish shield bugs just hatched (about 1 mm each) and recently I've seen some green ones a bit bigger (about 5 mm). I think this may well also be a youngster from this year.

Great colours and compo !
Nice shot, Nicolas !
