Greenery


Out in the Grinds the little shield bug trekked

O’er leaf and branch it carefully crept

A few more steps then its climb was done
And from the edge of a leaf it buzzed, away into the sun.

I didn’t manage to catch it flying away. I wasn’t expecting it to fly. I wasn’t expecting it to buzz!

I’d never seen one of these little bugs before, until I discovered one hibernating beneath a strip of wood earlier this year; and now I see them regularly! I wanted to take a few close up photos, so took my mobile phone out to the hedge to see what I could find, and this little fella’s walk couldn’t have been timed better!

Right place, right time.

Always good to know!
