Blending in?

This Green stinkbug nymph is trying to blend in with the red foliage of Hibiscus 'Mahogony Splendor'.

Not sure if he's pulling it off.


Maybe they're just enjoying some colorful foliage while they can...

...since after they mature they'll only be camouflaged on green leaves.

It seems late in the season to still be maturing, but I suppose we have another month or so before the first frost, so perhaps there is time?

I think nymphs are so interesting, often more beautiful than the adults!

Ugh - stinkbugs. We were INFESTED with them last year. But this little guy seems to be a different variety - our stinkbugs were a disgusting shade of... stink! haha!

What an interesting looking bug. Some needs to let him know he isn't hiding very well.

They may be colorful, but in my eyes always icky. This year so far here, the masses of stink bugs on the sunny patio are not showing up. No lady bugs as well.

Amazing colors. Not like any stink bug I ever saw.
