Green Shield Bug
Found this little insect at work. When everyone thought it was disgusting and ran around screaming, I was looking forward to taking pictures of it.
We will enjoy its green color now in the summer. In the autumn fall, it will have a more brownish color.
Fun facts about shield bugs: The female puts eggs on leaves and then watches both eggs and kids for a few weeks. It belongs to the species stink bug that spreads a smelly odor if they feel threatened.
My cousin happened to eat a stink bug while she was going to eat ice cream.
It apparently tastes very bad.
