not fond of shield bugs, here we call them stink bugs, a fine capture of one, however!

Two great shots Fred...

Terry.
Great shot of that stinky little fella. Kind of good looking, for all of the crops they eat, and what they do inside.

This is an especially attractive shield bug, Fred.

I believe it's a Pentatoma rufipes, Red-legged Shieldbug, a final instar nymph in its colourful coat.
