[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Lesser known bugs:

This is a 12 mm big Shield bug species, (Heteroptera; Pentatomidae; Carpocoris pudicus (Poda, 1761)). The species has a Eumediterranean distribution, reaching Middle Europe in the North and the Caucasus in the East. The animal depends on sandy places and is not a frequent sight. I did not spot this one in my backyard, but on the Southern shore of lake Neuchâtel, la Grande Cariçaie. In the workshop section I present another individual, from Valais.

ID: There are four Carpocoris species in my region and C. purpureipennis looks very similar. In addition to that, there is much color variation. The second antennal segment is distinctly longer than the third one in the case of C. pudicus and in C. pudicus the black dots on the anterior scutellum form 4 spots; in C. purpureipennis these spots fuse. Still, there is room for doubts. Literature and pictures: E. Wachmann et al. 2008. Wanzen, Band 4. Goecke & Evers, Keltern D..

Very good macro of this Insekt!

Hallo Dieter!

Im Sommer auf "Cudrefin-Plage" Wanzen fotografieren... Wie vielseitig doch die Interessen und Beschäftigungsarten sind! Dein Bild ist technisch perfekt, es stimmt ganz einfach in allen Belangen und liegt in der Qualität weit über dem Durchschnitt. Damit meine ich aber nicht nur TN, sondern auch Bilder in der Sach- bzw. Fachliteratur.

As liebs Grüessli

Markus

Lieber Dieter,
Zwei sehr schöne Bilder zeigst Du uns heute. Das erste, klassischere Foto, sehr professionell gemacht, mit feinen Farben und bestem Bildaufbau. Das Bild im WS poetischer und leichter, gefällt mir auch sehr gut.
Eigentlich müsste ich da zwei Smilies vergeben, aber Du wirst Dich ja auch mit eienem begnügen. Das zweite wird Dir von den Wolken überbracht.
Herzlich grüsst
Anne

Hello Dietrich,
Not easy to find the good ID among Carpocoris! But must of all, your photo is fantastic: good composition, good management of flash light without burned area, perfect sharpness and nice background. TFS,
Catherine

Hello Dieter,
A great macro of this Shield Bug showing the fine pattern and colours on its back. I like the dark background and your composition too.

Hi Dietrich.
I like your outstanding shot of the species. These insects are frequent visitor of our garden. However, I could not take such wonderful close-up. All is brilliant: diagonal composition, ultimate details, amazing lights. Well done and TFS.
Alexei.
