@sonofsimon submitted: Found this cute green stink bug out in the woods of Michigan. It’s doing it’s best, but thers is no green stuff for him to blend in with.
Look at that cute face.
I am looking!!! It’s very cute. Failing miserably at camouflage but I still love and support them

!!! everybody who knows me knows i’m a bug loving nerd
and so like
one of the things that folks who aren’t bug loving nerds don’t know and may be surprised to learn is that “bug” is a legit Sciency Term that refers only to certain kinds of insects. So like. ants and butterflies and beetles, for instance, aren’t bugs. ~Bugs~ are insects in the order “hemiptera,” and they include assassin bugs, leaf hoppers, cicadas, and stink bugs.
Almost all of my least favorite insects are bugs lmfaoooo true bugs look so FUCKING FREAKY to me.
Llike, I dig assassin bugs bc i mean, they’re just metal as fuck.
i dig leaf-footed bugs bc they just look like friendly assassin bugs.
cicadas are cool bc they like to scream and also some of them get to live underground for 17 years and then come to the surface and scream for a weak and die, and i mean, what could be better than THAT??
but holy WOW i cannot stand stink bugs. I appreciate their place in the natural world, but that place is definitely NOT my room or my home or anywhere where my eyeballs are looking. I don’t wanna fuckin see a stink bug. I want to live my life as unaware as possible of stink bugs. And like. They fly so FUCKING LOUD!!! Like jeez, if you’re going to fuckin become an invasive species* and just take over the whole damn east coast, could you do it more quietly??? PLEASE???
and good lord, giant water bugs??? I have never laid eyes on a giant water bug in person and if I did, I think I would literally just cease to exist. Like. my corporeal form would be reclaimed by the dark matter of the universe and my consciousness would transcend into setllar energy and I would be No More, because there is nothing that this universe has ever conceived of that is more horrific-looking than a giant water bug.
that’s a hell naw to the naw naw naw from me.
