Blue eyes

A green shield bug, who yesterday was my guest. They have a kind of trunk on their ventral side, which they prick into leafes and fruits to drink the sap. I also found amazing the blue eyes. As children we loved them for their bad smelling ;) ... in case of danger they reject a very bad smelling secretion to dislodge animals, which want to eat them.
