Sloe Shield Bug (Dolycoris baccarum) | 2011


I used to find this bug only in its brown variation and when i saw this one i fell in love. Purple is my favorite color anyhow. I took this photo with my Canon 450D, using an old manual Jupiter 135mm lens with extension tubes. Aperture was set at f/8, shutter speed at 1/200s and iso 100, on-camera flash was also used. This might not be one of my best macro shots but i can’t help to love the color!
