This stink bug was taken against the light, so the details of the stink bug didn't come out clearly.

In my primary school, there used to be lots and lots of stink bugs. At least that was what I remembered. We loved going around to crush them but the smell they give out was obnoxiously nasty. Hence, the common name Stink Bug.

Anyway, in this photo, the adult looked like it was tending to its brood of young bugs! It was gross, wasn't it? And there were many clusters of them around on the plant.

I am not getting anywhere near the plant for now. I cannot believe that the older I get, the more these creatures freak me out. But to be fair, there are some pretty looking stink bugs around that are actually more appealing to the eyes.
