This gorgeous bug caught my eye , it was literally at head height.
It is a Apolygus spinolae
Insects belonging to the order Hymenoptera are commonly known as bugs. There are 1700 species of bugs in Britain. They all have the piecing mouthpart rather like a needle to suck juices from plants and animals.
This specimen was found on thistle , the book says often found on thistles, meadowsweet brambles and nettles . There will probably be a lot of these around to be discovered once you get your eye in !
