 this is my pic- as some of these really STINK......
This is my pic on porch yesterday, and I want you to see a pic that was posted with this article on Wicked-Pedia!!
I mean- MINE is soo much better! Just kidding...-I'm sure theirs is only about 75 dpi's for Internet posting, but enlarging them totally washed out the picture from Wikipedia. There are others linked to the article that are BEAUTIFUL and oh so Diverse!

Pic's from Wikipedia

 (Pic and Image of Table courtesy of Wikipedia)

Pentatomidae, Greek pente meaning five and tomos meaning section, is a family of insects that includes some of the stink bugs and shield bugs. Their antennae are 5-segmented, which gives the family its scientific name. Their bodies are usually shield-shaped. The stink bugs have thick wing covers known as shields. The name stinkbug derives from from their tendency to eject a foul-smelling substance when disturbed; the liquid containing cyanide compounds with a rancid almond scent. This is known as autohaemorrhaging, and is a form of antipredator adaptation.

  11. Hi John

    Sorry I've been a bit scares these days. I don't like bugs so I didn't like the bug pictures. I like the signs though. Made me laugh. :)

    You should enjoy your day.

  12. How on earth can your funk leave that quickly? You suck at being funky John.

  13. Once there was a huge tree next to my granny house, with a hole at its base trunk a man can walk through.

    I was always fearful of the tree.

    And one day as I was standing in the lawn, the great tree fell.

    And missed my granny's house by inches.

  14. Funny signs! Glad you are rebounding from the funk...

  15. Bernadine!! Bugs are cool! I will enjoy it--but it will have to be inside in the Air Conditioning!!


    Jeannie-- One word--- Denial!

    And I'm not talking about that river in Egypt!

    But I do feel better!


    Shadowthorne-- WOW!! I'll bet that was awesome and oh so scary at the same time!


    Buff-- Yeah--State of Mind is better, and so are the correct BP meds! LOL!

    I did chuckle at those signs!
