An old dandelion has a visitor

I do not know what this insect is called - maybe someone else does?

Jeg må bare innrømme at jeg blir rent misunnelig over at du har truffet på et så vakkert insekt og klart å fange det så flott på løvetannfrø!!

Dette var bildet sitt, virkelig!!!

Flott foto!
Jeg kom til å tråkke flat en slik inne engang. Gjør aldri det! Den stanken henger egentlig i nesen fortsatt flere år etterpå....

Utrolig flott bilde. Flotte farger og skarphet i bildet.

Reader Wil said...

Flott bild! Takk for besøk! I think this is a very beautiful insect, but I really don't know what it is called. Thanks for your visit! Have a great week and you too, take care.

In France, it would be a kind of "punaise", but I don't know the english name.But according to the size of a dandelion, you really made an impressive picture!

Gunilla said...

Vilken fantastisk bild.
Så tydlig och skarp så att man kan räkna alla strån. Insekten är okänd.

Ha en fortsatt fin kväll

Very nice macro. That looks like some sort of shield bug but I have never seen one with that much color before.

Hva slags linse bruker du,er det lov å spørre om det?Skal ha meg macrolinse,men vet ikke helt hvilken jeg skal kjøpe.

Rune: Very neat capture of the bug and dandylion. That bug looks like a painted version of our Stink Bug (Pentatomidae).

Denise said...

I don't know what your insect is called but I should start learning their names as I find them fascinating. Your photo is an incredible macro. You make both dandylion and little bug look absolutely exquisite. Thank you very much for sharing them with Today's Flowers, and have a great week.

Darla said...

I agree with fishingguy......a stinkbug of some sort. Great capture.

Kathy said...

LOL that is the strangest bug I have ever seen. Great shot. =)

kden said...

That is such an amazing shot; you can even see the little hairs on the bugs legs. Beautiful colors too.

Ebie said...

What a beautiful little creature, and great macro.

Arija said...

Rune, that is a superb macro shot with the angel hair Dandelion head and colurful bug.

Dina said...

I've seen that shape bug before but never with those amazing colors! Great shot.

Regina said...

So nice with a bug. Perfect!

Barbara Martin said...

Very nice clarity with the insect on the dandelion fluff. I would be interested in knowing what kind of bug it is too.

lv2scpbk said...

I always thought they were stink bugs. They leave a horrible odor if touched. I've never seen them in that color before.

imac said...

Super shot Rune, 2 beautiful items to photo in 1.

Your EG Tour Guide said...

Beautiful shot! The insect shows up so well in the fluff, I like the contrast of the softness of the seed head and the crisp lines of the insect.

Shady Gardener said...

Great photo! You have found a beautiful insect. :-)
