WHY ARE INSECTS SO INSPIRING?
One of the most beautiful bugs I've ever seen.

Wow, that is a pretty bug. I wonder if the colors are to attract other bugs, or are to say that they're poisonous.
Either way though, very nice picture! Thank you for sharing!

I think second option is correct. As all Pentatomidae, they produce stinking and probably poisonous liquid.

Thanks :)
