I know this will be an easy one, but I've never actually identified what these are.

This fella was trying to get into my kitchen. Fast buggers. My attempts of re-directing him backfired and he flew off into the kitchen, rather than back the other way  :dizzy:

    Red Legged I think, Pentatoma rufipes. Got lots of those in the last moth trap

    Funny thing is that this morning, entirely by chance, I came by another one, but this time bright green. He was perfectly camouflaged among the foliage of one of my Cosmos. Clearly must have quite a few of them about.
