Here are my photos for today.

This one was on my back door in October.

The dreaded and most destructive of the stink bug species, is this Brown Marmorated Stink Bug. (Halyomorpha halys). This species is native to East Asia. How did it come here to the U.S? No one is sure but it probably came here in a shipping container in 1995.

I had to smash the side of my face to get this photo of its face. Oh, the positions we get into to get our photos. LOL!

A week later on a cold dreary day, I found this one on my window. It was probably trying to find a way inside to get warm and spend the winter. That is what these pests do.

There are over 5,000 species of stink bugs and I was able to identify this one as the Brown Marmorated Stink bug because of the alternating light and dark spots on the abdomen, and the white banded legs and antennae.

This species feeds on more than 100 crops. An agricultural nightmare!

When protecting themselves from predators or when they are crushed, they release a foul smelling odor; hence their name.

Proof of transfer.

Thanks for stopping by!

All photos are my own.

Hi @kaminchan! Nice to see you here and thanks for your entry. : )

Thursday! The wonderful day of insects and butterflies has arrived.

Glad you like Thursday's @antoniarhuiz! Thanks for stopping by! : )

You would think that these bugs are cute. LOL! Thanks for your entry. : )

Cute but stinky, though praying mantis don't even care about the stink and eat them anyway.

I didn't know that so thanks for telling me. Also, if you want your post to be in the community you need to use the hive tag first.

Yeah i accidentally posted it with butterflyday first now it wont let me edit the tag order. Too bad the hives have to be random numbers. How on earth is a human supposed to remember hive numbers lol.

These got into the house last autumn, probably due to the construction. I found one in the kitchen yesterday, and boy do they stink!

That certainly was not a nice surprise. They sure do stink!

Thank you so much @whatisnew and congrats to all the other winners see you all in the next round 😊

My pleasure! See ya soon. : )

Most definitely ....Cheers 👍

Great shield bug photos! I resteemed and shared the contest around on Discord.

That is so nice of you Melinda! Thanks so much. Hugs!
You missed this one and you will love it. Look here.

Thanks, You are right, I do love it! ... I am behind on #featheredfriends posts, but will work on getting caught up after I finish listening to Steemwaves Saturday show with @crimsonclad. I haven't done any eSteem curating yet today, either! I always get behind on Fridays because of Shadow Contest stuff!

I knew you would love it and didn't want you to miss it since it is past payout. I have no idea how you do it all. You must live here. LOL! Hmm, I will have to check out Steemwaves show.

I admit to being here far too much, but it keeps me from being lonely! It was 3 years ago yesterday that Jim died and I've made it through some rough times because of Steem. ❤️

Aw, I know how much you miss him and I am glad that you had Steem to help you. I wish I could spend more time here but medical problems won't allow me to do it. Sorry for this late reply but I had a 4 day migraine from hell. See what I mean?

You poor dear! Take/eat more antioxidants and feel better soon!

That is exactly what I am doing. Thanks Melinda! : )

Thanks Mike! Sorry for the late reply. I had a 4 day migraine from hell.
