Woundwort Shieldbug

This woundwort shieldbug (Stagonomus venustissimus) is quite common in Europe, but you have to watch closely to spot one, because they are only about 6mm long. Also they know how to blend in with their surroundings, choosing a stalk of just the right colour to match their shield.
