Bronze Shieldbug - A quick change of clothes

A final instar Bronze Shieldbug Troilus luridus nymph was sitting on a willow leaf at Priory CP on Sunday, so I brought it home to take a better picture. Two days later it is now an adult and looking considerably different! (It still has the final segment of the right antenna missing though). I'll take it back to Priory tomorrow when I go to work.
