Yesterday I posted photos of sunlight on flowers from my holiday, but I finished with a photo of a small red and black insect who I promised to introduce you to properly today. Well here he is…..
To give him his full title Stefan Stink Bug-from the Family-True Shieldbugs (Pentatomidae) with the other name of Eurydema Ornata!!
On holiday in Turkey we visited an ancient archaeological site called Tlos, where there is a fortress built high in the mountains…..and I mean high….look….
Anyway, at the top there was this bush that was completely covered in these little critters…..
Well if you’re observant you can…look hard!
So this is Zena from the Family-True Shieldbugs (Pentatomidae) with the other name of Zicrona Caerulea (Zena Zicrona for short)!
Here’s some more of them…..
Tomorrow I will show you photos of the saucier side of the life of these Pentatomidae Stefan and Zena!!
Bet you can’t wait!
PS Thank you Hazel (findlikin’ good!) for spotting them!
See Ya xx
