Interesting that you would post this 'bug' on your blog. I have been finding atleast one a week on my kitchen counter and so today I looked him up. I found that: The brown marmorated stink bug, an insect not previously seen on our continent, has apparently been accidentally introduced into eastern Pennsylvania. It says they can become pests but generally are not. It is called 'stink'bug because of the foul odor it releases when threatened.

Nice contrast in your photos, Craig. I always like to see pine and fern as a background. I see these litte guys on occasion, but they never seems to be an annoinance.

Pretty cool! (What can I say, I like stink bugs.)

Elaine said...

This post stinks!!

LOL!! Nice post Craig. Howcome you are taking pictures of bugs now. Have you been influenced by that woman across the pond again? It is amazing how we do not notice these smaler critters until someone points them out to us. :) So carry on please, I like seeing you bugs.

Lol...wow that is an interesting bug. I would not want to cross that thing.

Look at all that armor the bug is wearing. Wonder if they are stinky to themselves? !!! :D

Neat macro - I'm sure you were careful not to "bug" him, thus saving yourself from the stink ;)

Love your stink bug pictures!
Many years ago I had a friend in Longwood. I believe her father was the mayor but not positive on that. I lived in Sanford at the time.
Thanks for visiting my Georgia blog.

Really cool macro shots, Craig! I love the bright yellow-green of the cypress. It makes a great backdrop for your critter.

Craig,
Ohhh so glad we can't get a whif of this creature thru blogging..phew! They are all over our yard this year. I just make sure I get them outside as they can stink up a place!!
photographing Bugs, now!
ps I kept putting out orange halves for my red-bellies and finally after a month of sacrificing oranges to the elements..those ole RBWs have decided to eat them! I remember seeing them eating oranges on your posts a while back!!
