Harlequin Bug (Murgantia histrionica)


Taken 6/16/08

Harlequin Bug (Murgantia histrionica)


Brightly colored and attractive though it may be, a Harlequin Bug is still a plant juice sucking stink bug at heart.

(Note: It didn't eat the holes in the broccoli leaf. Cabbage Lopers did the leaf munching.)

Your pictures are really fantastic, and today's commentary made me laugh!

This is a purdy bug Marvin. I have seen Harliquin Ducks before but not Harliquin bugs.

Wonderful picture. Pretty as it may be I think I'd still run screaming if I saw one. :-)

Like the close up - but glad I didn't find him on me - I would be running from the yard screaming about now.

Enough of this "being ladylike." {And don't you *dare* ask, when was I ladylike! -grin-} Damn it Marvin, enough of the ugly bugs, already! >,-) Show us some of those delicious blackberries which you have been harvesting.

I looked back. 'Twas June 16th when you last showed us some, ripening. 'Tis been bugs, bugs, bugs, ever since.

I admit, you've got me nearly immune to them, by now. Even showed you a Green Lacewing myself! {Yes, I only know it was a Green Lacewing..... because _you_ said so. But... Still....}

Time for a different tack. Time for a different topic. Time to stop trying to *gross-out* your female readers. >,-)))

Wild flowers, man! Delicious blackberries! Etc.

These are the imports to our country that are doing so much damage and killing off some of our native ones..

I never realised I'd not visited for so many days.. what a treat it as been playing catch up today.
