Hello friends in TN.

I spotted this stink bug as I leave the car in my front porch.

Many stink bugs and shield bugs are considered agricultural pest insects, because they can create large populations, they suck plant juices and damage crop production, and they are resistant to many pesticides. However, some genera of Pentatomidae are considered highly beneficial: the anchor bug, which can be distinguished by the red-orange anchor shape on the adult, is one example. It is a predator of other insects, especially Mexican bean beetles, Japanese beetles, and other pest insects.


Thanks for viewing!

Salam Bro. Jusni,
exciting front view in dramatic composition. The shine on its portrait really depict its ferocious look.
Make sure you dont allow the bug to spray its Aramis to you, or else another jab from the clinic!
You controlled the view very well.


Hi Jusni,
This is a very good close up well captured!Excellent sharpness and good light.

Hello Jusni,

Truly impressive details in this scary fellow!
The point of view works well, and the chosen DoF isolates the bug nicely in the setting...
A well balanced composition, fine natural colours!

Hallo Jusni,
a very good macro shot of this bug taken from an aggressive frontal point of view, superb focusing with fine details

Excelente enfoque centrado en la cabeza del insecto, que de esta manera potencias más.
Buena luz y colores.

Hi Jusni.
I like the macro shot so much. These days I also pictured similar insects. Very impressive POV and eye-contact. Despite I like to use smaller aperture value you managed to achieve a very pleasant combination of tack sharp FG and nice smooth bokeh. Well done and my warm greetings.

Hi Jusni,
Great macro shot from a very interesting angle. Beautiful eye contact. :) Simplistic yet quite effective shot with splendid lights and sharpness. Nice job, congrats and tfs.
Friendly regards, László
