Western Conifer Seed Bug

I found this Western Conifer Seed Bug, Leptoglossus occidentalis, on a wall in central Swansea today. Although a non-native species it's certainly a large and striking bug.



Once I'd got it home for a photo, it repeatedly insisted on flying onto, and posing on, a leftover jacket potato!

I've still yet to cross paths with one of these little beasties - perhaps if I take a baked potato out with me I'll be more successful?

For info. I have images of one from September 2010
