Sunday Wonders - A

A is for Armor.

This warrior beetle is doing his best to defend the bean crop that I'm taking from him.  He's so determined that he's not abandoned his post.  Doesn't he have the most beautiful shield?

Even if it means a total relocation, this soldier is ready.  However, he's not that far from the bean poles.  I'm betting he made it back before too long.

This is a stink bug, or shield bug. They have invaded the east coast in biblical proportions, and there were articles in two papers this weekend. Washington, D.C. has even appointed a Stink Bug Czar! They can really damage your crops.

Yes, Stephanie, his armour is beautiful, and he gave you fodder for today's Sunday Wonders post.
I hope, after reading Ginny's comment, that he doesn't damage your crops.

No worries about the crops. Poor little warrior will probably not get much to eat after this weekend. Due to the rain, tomatoes are all harvested. The beans are slowing down and everything else has come and gone.
