Up close and personal with a stink bug.

That’s either one really brave stinkbug, or it’s really stupid to sit there and wave its antennae with a huge black nose above it.

And it continued on its path of investigating Mewsette’s paws as Mewsette closely watched. She must look like a monumental statue to the stinkbug. I’m not unhappy when they show up. Later last night one had a standoff with Mimi and Jelly Bean, which kept both of them completely still and preoccupied while I was painting wooden mounting blocks.
