I don't know what this bug is (some kind of beetle?), but he looks almost like a tank!

shield bug is another name for a stink bug (so called becasue they give off a noxious gas when endangered) sweet shot............. crystal sharp...


should be called a fart bug ;)

Very nice capture. Entire beast is in focus. Nicely composed.

Very nice shot of the stinky shield bug here. Nice exposure and DOF and vey sharp, I might have left a little more room in front of it here when you cropped it.
