    That is actually a juvenile Green Shieldbug (nymph). The shape of their backs changes when they become adult, and develop wings.

    These always need checking carefully because there is now a Southern Green Shieldbug which has been accidentally established in the UK and is gradually moving northwards.

    ps. They tend to be difficult to photograph well because of shiny reflections which cause over exposure spots. So you did well with these.
