I went out Saturday morning to put the clothes on the line, I was wearing my grey hat as it was quite windy. When I came back inside and took off my hat I found this little guy who had obviously come along for the ride. He was pretty friendly and allowed me to photograph him at very close range. I now know it is was a Green Shield Bug from the family Pentatomidae, quite common in Ireland and Britain.

Yours are cuter than ours. Over here in PA we have brown shield bugs and they're awful (and smell foul when you squish em')
