We have another submission from our friend Lisa who took this amazing photo on her iPhone last week. She captured this shot near the entrance to the park. She not only shared this photo but also filled us in on what type of bug it is. Lisa told us this is a Say’s Stink Bug, which is also known as Chlorochroa sayi from the Pentatomidae family. Up close it is about 1/2″ in length. Though it isn’t yet spring, this species is actually common in summer gardens. Glands near the hind legs produce an acrid vapor that discourages predators. Thanks again Lisa, for sharing your photo and knowledge. Hope to see you in the park again soon!
