The picture shows the largest European species of the Heteroptera family Acanthosomatidae
- Acanthosoma haemorrhoidale.
I observed this bug on the same sunny winter day as I met the peacock butterfly which I posted some days ago to TN. Like Nymphalis io, also Acanthosoma haemorrhoidale hibernates in the imaginal stage. So, similar to the peacocks, brimstones and commy butterflies seen at this day, this specimen was obviously waken up by the power of the sun and the high air temperatures.

Hello Peter!
Another interesting insect from your collection, but this this the Eurpean bug ;)
I have to say that it is not very popular insect group among photographers so thanks for showing this one. And this is interesting because very often these species are really beautiful - like this one. Maybe it is beacause of their "self-defence"? ;)
The picture is good and very colourful. I like also the DOF and sharpness. Note is very informative as always.
The only things I would like to delete are the reflection on insect's eye and antennae :)
Anyway, nice and interesting presentation.
Best greetings,

  • Great

Hallo Peter,
Diese Wanze ist total in ihre Umgebung integriert. Du hast sie gesehen und super fotografiert, aus einem nicht ganz einfachen Winkel. Gestern sass auf unserer Hauswand auch eine brunliche Wanze.
Liebe Grsse

Hallo Peter,
herrlich die glitzernden Details und die frischen Farben auf dieser hbschen Wanze. Sehr gute Detailwiedergabe dank groer Tiefenschrfe und eine klare, dynamische, sehr gelungene Komposition.
Mit Dank und besten Gren,
