Stink Bug on Lantana Flowers (Nezara viridula)

Orden : Hemiptera
Familia: Pentatomidae


All adult stink bugs are shield-shaped. Green and southern green stink bugs are bright green and measure 14.0 to 19.0 mm long. The major body regions of the green stink bug are bordered by a narrow, orange-yellow line. Brown stink bugs are dull brownish-yellow in color and 12.0 to 15.0 mm long. Color plate.

When first laid, the barrel-shaped eggs of the green stink bug are yellow to green, later turning pink to gray. Eggs of the green stink bug measure 1.4 x 1.2 mm. The white, kettle-shaped eggs of the brown stink bug are slightly smaller than those of the green stink bug. The creamy, cylindrical eggs of the southern green stink bug measure 1.0 by 0.75 mm and develop a pinkish hue before hatching.

The nymphs of all three species are smaller than adults, but similar in shape. Green stink bug nymphs are predominantly black when small, but as they mature, they become green with orange and black markings. Nymphs of the brown and southern green species are light green. Southern green stink bug nymphs, however, have two series of white spots along their backs.

Stink bugs inflict mechanical injury to the seed as well as transmit the yeast-spot disease organism. The degree of damage caused by this pest depends to some extent on the developmental stage of the seed when it is pierced by the stink bug's needlelike mouthparts. The younger the seed when damaged, the greater the yield reduction. Although late season infestations may not affect yield, bean oil content and germination will be reduced.

Stink bugs overwinter as adults and become active in spring when temperatures rise above 21 degrees Centigrade (above 70 degrees F). Each female deposits up to several hundred eggs, usually in mid- or late June. These eggs are laid in clusters (averaging 36 eggs) primarily on leaves and stems but also on pods. Nymphs hatch from these eggs and pass through five instars before becoming adults. Approximately 5 weeks elapse between hatching and adult emergence.

Hello my friend!

Excellent image as always. This shows really good use of positioning to get a wonderful point of view.
The colours are rich and bright and details are sharp. I might have been tempted to use a narrower aperture to get a bit more of our lovely stink bug in focus.

It seems he's having a little dance!

Good job,
Simon

Hi Ricardo.
Next your amazing at high range macro shot. Pictured scene and moment are really great as well as the wonderful colours, impressive POV and precisely selected DOF. The exactness of reproduction of all details of the bug is so high that we can see even dust on its back. BG is perfect too. Great work of the great Master. BRAVO and best wishes, dear friend.

Hi Ricardo,
An excellent macro shot of this Stink Bug. Rich vibrant colors from the Lantana Flower. Sharp detail with a well managed DOF. A great pose with his front legs up in the air. Great job on overall exposure here.
Scott

Hello Ricardo,
It is these flowers again with this dancing insect :) I love its pose; it really seems like applauding or making some kind of a performance :) Details are pretty good but I guess that with a smaller aperture you could have caught the entire bug very clear. Anyway, it is always a question of choice as you used ISO 50; I don't have this ISO on my camera as it starts at 100... I like this composition, colors, brilliance on the flower and on the Bug's back. This nice green BG is much appropriated for your nice little friend. Well done again and TFS,
Claudine
PS, Those Lantana flowers really make great environment for insects :)

Hello Ricardo,
another one of your powerful, blissfully illuminated close-ups of tiny insects! The view from the side with the back brightly lit and the belly in the shadow makes the object look very three-dimensional, and the pose looks really funny as the bug seems to hesitate where to place its sting first.
A slightly larger depth of field would might have been even better here, but focus has been placed on the right parts.
Colours and lighting are splendid.
With thanks, and best regards,
Peter

A Beautiful macro of this stinkbug on a beautiful flower.The colours are striking.I really like the contrast between the rde of the flower and the wonderful blurred green BG.Excellent focus and detail.TFS

Rob

Hola Ricardo,
Una imagen de alta calidad tanto artstica como t馗nica.
El hermoso colorido de la foto es lo primero que capta mi atencin.
La gradacin de anaranjados de la flor contrastan con el fondo verde, tan claro y tan suave.
La apertura de tu c疥ara va del 2.7 al 8?
Por que en ese caso el f 5.6 utilizado debera ser suficiente para tener en foco a todo el insecto, pero qued algo corto con la parte mas cercana al observador.
Una vez mas felicitaciones por el excelente nivel de calidad global.
Un gran saludo,
JM

Hello Ricardo,
I like the captured pose, and the details are amazing!
Good light and fine colours, DOF spot on...
Pleasant composition with educational value!

Hi Ricardo

Another great macro from you, my friend!
This is a splendid setting you present us here - with a beautiful and colorfull flower and lovey bug on top.
The magnification is again great here and the details are very neat and sharp.
The DOF is also very good and it blurres the BG beautifully, while the light and the exposure helped you in sautrating all those wonderful tones nicely.
Very good composition and note, as well.

Bravo and TFS
Horia

Very impressive macro of the stink bug from a different point of view, Ricardo. Most of us would go for for the top view but you have shown us its profile view with the glimpse of both the uderbelly and the shield top.
Very rich saturated colours, fine DOF and vivid details.

Hola maestro:
ソCmo le haces para lograr esos colores en una chinche verde? Muy lindos tonos en esta gran macro. Me gusta el detlle del foco en las flores, y esa mirada aviesa de la chinche que parece decir: "No me molestes porque te meo"
Su figura y todo el cuadro se destaca muy bien sobre el fondo borroso y tenue.
Muy bien, aunque por all hay algo un poco desenfocado ソverdad? Por esta vez, pase...
Ahhh! ... Muy buena e ilustrativa tu nota

Hi Ricardo,
this is a very good close-up, the pose is very nice,
Well done with the exposure and good POV.
The details are fine and the shallow DOF is also good, the subject standout well from the BG.
Well done, old friend.

still winter with lots of snow, lomging for the spring-

Ahora ya la veo mejor :)
Colores, detalles, composicin, luz, todo esta perfecto excepto la profundidad de campo que est slo bien, aunque reconozco que al plano de enfoque esta aprovechado con agudeza para conseguir este nivel de acercamiento y aun asi conservar casi todo el insecto dentro de foco.
El contorno del insecto contra el fondo es muy bueno sobre todo teniendo en cuenta lo dificil que es conseguir un buen punto de vista con estas especies.
Ojal publicaras m疽 a menudo para disfrutar de tus fotos.
Un abrazo, Felipe.

Hi Ricardo

A lovely capture of old stinky with a great POV. The brilliant colours of the lantana add a spark of visual interest and assists in drawing the focus towards the insect visitor.

Great macro work with excellent sharpness in most of the details. Probably the DOF could have been slightly wider since you had ample light to work with and therefore could have improved on the aperture setting. That would have ensured perfect all round sharpness on the insect since the area on its "shoulder" turned out to be slightly soft. The OOF and evenly coloured BG makes the bug stand out well and the exposure was perfectly managed.

Good work and TFS.
Regards
Loot
