Baby Stink Bug (I Think)

My Home In North Georgia

I THINK this is a stink bug. It's on a VERY tiny leaf on my Schefflera plant and is probably no larger than an inch.

We watched its mother lay the eggs that this one hatched from on our screen. Three or four weeks later this little guy and about 40 or 50 of his siblings were now all inside our screened porch. I captured EVERY single one of them and put them outside. :)

Not sure what it is, but it's adorable... Nice shot.

Our stink bugs here are black unless the babies are red and I have never seen one. I have a Schefflera so I know how tiny those leaves are.

The colors are beautiful! I can't imagine how long it took to catch them all.

I'm sure their mother is eternally grateful for your kindness! Pretty baby.
