Hairy Shield-bug

I like Shield-bugs, and have featured them before.  Here’s another – the Hairy Shield Bug (Dolycoris baccarum), also known as the Sloe Shield-Bug, photographed on the Community Orchard at St.Ann’s Allotments:

Despite the name, it is not particularly associated with Sloe trees.  Quite a handsome little beastie!
