[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
This is the other shield bug with different patterns on the wings.

During warm months, female stink bugs attach large masses of eggs to the underside of leaves and stems. After hatching, the wingless nymphs go through five immature stages before becoming full-sized, winged adults. Stink bugs are not known to bite humans but caution should be used when handling them to avoid a release of their odor. If the bug releases its odour by way of spraying a fine mist, the mist can cause burning to the eyes which may result in abrasions to the cornea. If sprayed in the eyes, immediately flush the eyes with water and seek medical advice.

Hello Kapil,
Very nice photo of this Shield Bug. Good sharpness, natural colours and a pleasant diagonal composition.

Your SHIELD (mark the spelling) Bug looks charming from the top perspective, Kapil. There are rich details on its body and the green leaf provides an apt BG.
Well done and TFS.
