Standing Guard

Unidentified Shield Bug (superfamily Pentatomoidea) - Danum Valley, Malaysia

 

Some sort of shield bug stands guard over a clutch of her eggs. Tonight is my last night in the states before I head to Ecuador for 6 months, I won't have internet too often out there but hopefully once in a while I will have opportunities to upload more shots from Malaysia and new ones from Ecuador as well. I'll upload a few more tonight inbetween prepping for my trip.
