Green On Green

I discovered this green bug when it flew through my patio door. It is called the Green Shield Bug  (Palomena prasina). It is commonly seen resting on vegetation, but handle with care, for as a defence  mechanism it secretes a foul-smelling odour which has earned it another name ‘Stink Bug’.

  1. This one is really quite attractive. The only stink but I know here is black, and without many redeeming qualities — at least, in my opinion. I like the geometric design.
