Stink Bug

Did Ya Know: there are predatory stink bugs who suck the body fluids out of insects larger than them with a needle-like beak. Besides that being scary as heck for the bug world (see the attack in the image – I know I’m not into that), they mostly feed on plant pests. The one shown with its life sucked out of it here is a four-eyed milkweed beetle that, if it hadn’t been juiced by this stink bug, would have chewed down our milkweed.
