With all due respect to #iPhone
- which I definitely love - a dedicated macro lens on a dslr, paired with a speedlight, softbox and extension tubes can lead to much better results. 😁 my acknowledgements to the bugs for remaining at the very same place for over 24 hours!
This is a stink bug nymph (immature form) of the genre Pachylis. Its strong colors shows an antipredator adaptation, called aposematism, a kind of warning signal associated with the unprofitability of a prey. As they get older they acquire a brown color, maybe because, as adults, they develop more efficient self-defense strategies (like, for example, camouflage).
