Spiky Baby

I found this little one clinging to the flax plants under the birdfeeder and was attracted to its banded legs. I always find baby stinkbugs cute, but this one was especially interesting with its colors and spikes - I haven't seen spikes on them before.

    Wow, look at all that detail! Love all the little spots on it. I never see the detail like that even when I stick my face close. ^_^

    Is it missing a leg?
  • Ash PRO 5y

    I know - that's why I LOVE my macro lens! Yes, it's missing a leg, and after a molt, it still is.
