[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Shield bug and stink bug (or shieldbug and stinkbug) are common names applied to various insects of the Hemiptera order (the "true bugs"), in the Heteroptera suborder. Shield bugs have glands in their thorax between the first and second pair of legs which produce a foul smelling liquid. This liquid is used defensively to deter potential predators and is sometimes released when the bugs are handled carelessly. The stink comes from aldehydes such as CH3–(CH2)2–CH=CH–CHO, and is chemically similar to pheromones.

Kingdom: Animalia
Phylum: Arthropoda
Class: Insecta
Order: Hemiptera

Hi Aytul

Great photo! The contrast with the green body and rusty head really draws you ino the photo. Great macro use and DOF.


Hello Aytul,
It is interesting to see how the texture in the bug resembles the texture in the leaf!
A very informative photo documentary, well done on the macro work!

Hello Again Aytul!
Very impressive shot! EXCELLENT DETAILS YOU'RE SHOWING! This bug has a fantastic camouflage... Nice vivid colours. Perfect focus and DOF.


Hi Aytul!
This is really interesting insect! I have never seen such species of bug! I especialy like its colours! I believe that this is some kind of camouflage - green-brown colours of head and thorax looks really nice.
DOF and details are fantastic too!
It is a great pleasure to watch this image!
Best withes and have a nice weekend!
