True Bugs - Insect Order Hemiptera

The True Bugs are insects that have two pairs of wings, the front or outer pair of each divided into a leathery basal part and a membranous apical part. These wing covers are held over the back and often partly folded. True bugs have hypodermic-needle-like mouthparts that allow them to extract subsurface fluids from plants and animals. Bugs undergo incomplete metamorphosis, with their young looking much like adults, but without wings.
True bugs are some of the most important economic agrucultural pests in the world.
There are approximately 80,000 species worldwide,

Excellent presentation, Hasan.
It is the first time when I see it. It is an image important for TN.
I did not find its name on Web.
Thank you

Great composition, great colors.
Well done.

Very nice shot Hasan.
Never seen before.
Coog colours and composition, just a bit soft.
Well done.

Excellent post, it is very interesting indeed. You have a bit of noise in the background and the back is quite out of DOF but the image worths posting, I have never seen somethink like this before, and the colours are outstanding.

Very interesting capture, Hasan. Your focus point was the eggs. They are very sharp and colorful. The bug is a bit OOF at the end. But still a nice capture. Well done.

And look at all those true bugs' eggs. Such a good shot Hasan. Colours, compo and details great. Good job!

Hi, the bug with the eggs is Anoplocnemis sp. (Coreidae), some of the species are important pests in the tropics. Note its curved and somewhat thickened hind legs.
