I Spied A Stink Bug

I spied a brown marmorated stink bug in my kitchen while I was preparing my lunch. As I had the camera ready with new filters to try. I whipped out the camera and changed lens to use this bug as my subject.This bug is a pest and I should have dispatched it after I finished photographing it. It is an pest that can cause widespread damage to fruit and vegetable crops. I had it pose on some oranges on my worktop to allow for contrast.I placed stinky on my plant and it promptly fly away when I wasn't looking.
