The stink bugs’ stink is a defense mechanism that it can emit that keeps potential predators away.
If you like this stink bug and want to see more images of Patio Life, please view the Patio Life gallery.
Patio Life will be exhibiting at the Olympus InVision Photo Festival in Bethlehem, PA from November 1-24, 2019!
