You're welcome, Stormy. I tip my hat to you. Those spider photos of yours gave ME the creeps just looking at them! Sticking tongue out I hope you don't encounter any of its friends or relatives again!

By the way, I have seen very few BM stinkbugs this fall.

I saw one yesterday Sally and was thinking the same thing. I think I've only seen 4 or 5 this year. I have heard people further west of Pa making a fuss about them, so maybe they have moved on. Thumbs up

Same here, Sally & Stormy - I've only seen a few, actually less than last year, which I hope is a good sign! Whistling

Wow, Sally - neat picture of that very different-looking Anchor Stinkbug - where did you see that critter??? Blinking

I guess I found him in the garden one day, just a lucky find, I don't remember what plant it was on

thank you- I get lucky- That was taken with a Canon Powershot A 710 IS, on 'flower' mode. (See what I mean, don't know much but get lucky and seems like a good camera Thumbs up ) The lighting and the camera go a long way to a good shot.

Well, yeah, Sally, but my FIL has a saying - that's like telling someone who's a really good cook, "Nice pots". Big Grin

That's a great shot! Thumbs up

I'm hoping somebody here can ID this critter. It was on the outside of the house last weekend, just sitting there, not doing too much. It was about 2" long. I've rotated the one with the red background so you can see his/her profile a little better. It looks very prehistoric!

You nailed it, Sally! Hurray!

And of course you win something...my eternal gratitude for your knowledge! Whistling

I gotta ask - did you already know this? I've certainly never seen one of them before. Sounds like a GOOD bug to have around if it eats japanese beetles.

That's a pretty weird bug.

It really IS one of the weirdest looking bugs I've ever encountered in person, and I thank Sally for the ID. (Though I like the "curl butt bug" name a lot!) Rolling on the floor laughing As I said, it truly looks like a prehistoric dinosaur or something.
