Young green Bug, this is nymphae of... well I don't know of what kind of bug. I'm in work now and as always without my books. Later in the evening I'll try to ID this one and post more technical data of this picture. This one was photographed in Lodz's Botanical Garden last summer. I miss hot summer so much! Look at my WS - this was taken hour ago.

TN always helpfull! This is Nymph of the Green Shield Bug - Palomena prasina. Hans captured the same here - http://www.treknature.com/gallery/Europe/Belgium/photo3355.htm

This common bug has a flattened, shield-shaped body, as the name suggests. It is bright green in colour with delicate flecks of black that look like small puncture marks. In November, the insects darken in colour and spend the winter hibernating with a dark-bronze colouration. Although the sexes are similar in appearance, females tend to be larger than males. Like all bugs (Hemiptera), the green shield bug has specialised sucking mouthparts, which in this species are used to feed on plant sap. This species belongs to a sub-order known as the ‘true bugs’ (Heteroptera) in which only the tips of the wings are membranous; the rest of the wing is hardened. When the bug is at rest, the wings are held flat over the body and the membranous parts of the wings overlap.

Great shot very good details, good choise of frame.
Well done

Good detail, and colours. Could have probably benefitted with having the exposure tweaked down just a little, say 1/3rd to 1/2 of a stop just to saturate the colours more and get more detail in the bug, which is very close to being being washed out.

Delicada presentacion con agradable perspectiva.
Adecuado DOF con suaves tonos componen una excelente imagen.
Sólo marcaría la existencia de algo de ruido en la imagen.
Realicé un Workshop reduciendo este efecto... espero te agrade.

Delicate presentation with pleasant perspective.
Suitable DOF with smooth tones they compose an excellent image.
I would only mark the existence of something of noise in the image.
I made a Workshop reducing this effect... I hope pleases to you.
