Shield Bug film

Shield bug video with amazing slow motion flight footage , filmed in UK.

These insects, Shield Bugs are named because of the shield shape, this reminds people of the Ancient British Knights shields, Knights used to defend themselves with in medieval times.

Scientifically however they are not one family. Usually four families are considered belonging to the shield bugs. Because of their shape and the fact that their antennae are comprised of five elements each.

First of all we have the True Shieldbugs (Pentatomidae). Shield Bugs can be told apart from the other families by their large scutellum or shield. The triangular shield immediately behind the thorax shield.
