Halyomorpha halys
Location? Kathy Meaders Apartment Deck
Cheney, WA
Its dark, mottled brown coloration would help camouflage it on rocks or tree bark

Kathy moved into my apartment complex and she saw this one on her screen, then knocked it down..I grabbed a quick image with teh infamous Leica with no viewfinder nor LCD. i work with lucky guesses:-)

The video of Kathys Move is part of a double header seen here...

Wonderful macro shot Bob,
Excellent detail and good DOF. Looks like it was a bright sunny day for you to be out and about.
I've seen a few of these guys already this spring, but haven't taken any photos of one yet. TFS.

Oh... do we see these all too often lately... on the screened in porch and even in the house. Our cats love to point them out to us. :) Thanks Bob for sharing... ;)

Hello Bob,
Beautiful photo in nice camouflaged colours. Very sharp and great details. Good composition.

Hi Bob,
I've seen a few stink bugs in my time but never such a knobbly gnarly looking one.
The texture is amazing and fits perfectly with the background.
Cheers & TFS
