Shield Bug ID

The first photo was taken today and I think this is the Common Green Shield Bug (Palomena prasina). The second photo was taken last summer and I thought it was also a Common Green Shieldbug, but comparing the two it is slightly lighter in colour.


Can anyone confirm whether both of these photos of the same species? or is the second a Southern Green Shieldbug (Nezara viridula)?
