    Wow. Been trying this sort of thing, its not easy. This is truly wonderful. Tubes? Tripod? Macro or plain flash?

    Love it. Perhaps a tighter crop?

    Maybe fractionally tighter, but I wouldn't crop too tight - except for identification purposes.

    Probably a Green Shieldbug (Palomena prasina) but I would need to see other angles to be certain.
