Baby bugs! by melvynyeo Baby bugs! by melvynyeo
Found freshly hatched bugs underneath a leaf. The shells are rather interesting looking... look a little like EVE from Wall-E :)

Brown Marmorated Stink Bug Nymph. ID suggested by deathbypuddle.deviantart.com/

Pentatomoidea is a superfamily of insects in the Heteroptera suborder of the Hemiptera order and, as such, share a common arrangement of sucking mouthparts. They are commonly referred to as shield bugs, chust bugs, and stink bugs.

There are about 7000 species under Pentatomoidea, divided under 14 to 15 families.

Pentatomoidea are characterized by a well developed scutellum (the hardened extension of the thorax over the abdomen). It can be triangular to semi-elliptical in shape. Pentatomoidea usually have antennae with five segments. The tarsi usually have two or three segments.

Shield bugs have glands in their thorax between the first and second pair of legs which produce a foul smelling liquid. This liquid is used defensively to deter potential predators and is sometimes released when the bugs are handled carelessly.

The nymphs, similar to adults except smaller and without wings, also have stink glands.

The nymphs and adults have piercing mouthparts, which most use to suck sap from plants, although some eat other insects. When they group in large numbers, they can become significant pests.

Species that resemble pentatomoids are found in the superfamily Coreoidea.

I have a pet snail named Glory. They had a sibling named Thomas before he left while I was fixing their jar (Yes, I put them in a jar. That was the closest thing to a cage for me ok???). I hadn't named them before yesterday. Glory didn't move that much, however, sometimes when I check on them they're in a different place then before. I got Ivy leaves for them, and they are more active now. I give her more water and they are seeming just fine! One of my neighbors named them something along the lines of Glory and Gorey, but she had a heavy accent so I couldn't understand what she said. Now my snail is Glory. The life of a bug is amazing, is it not?

Amazing work!
Is this picture take with the 100f2.8 and the 30mm extension rings? What aperture do you go for?
What is the set up for this picture?
I am really impressed ;)

Thank you for this reply, Melvyn.
So you go for extension rings + 100f2.8 + Raynox250.
What is it on the top? I have no clue about what it is ...

The top is my flash, I inverted it and mount it on the tripod collar and trigger it via off shoe cord. :) I did this to move my flash forward so that i can lower my flash power. This is my previous setup 4.bp.blogspot.com/-eS217EhkxUA…

Its about the same but i need higher flash power or ISO.

Thank you for those explanations Melvin ;)
What would you say about the Raynox250? Does it lower the overall image quality?

Hmm... depends on how fussy you are :) I personally find them ok, maybe towards the edge the IQ will drop... but if you are looking at closeup filter, this is definitely one of the best. Fyi, the raynox 250 is a +8 closeup filter, which makes your shooting kind of limited. For my setup, i can only shoot at min distance of 5cm to about maybe 15cm.

I am not fussy at all ;)
Once again thank you for taking the time to answer my questions.
I will very probably buy a Raynox 250 in october and will keep you posted about the results.
Greetings from France.

As grossed out as I am by bugs, this photograph is awesome! It's so clear and crisp. I get this horrible notion that they are going to crawl out of my screen!
