I'm not sure what this critter is doing ... but I'm afraid it is not good for the cherries in my garden

He thinks it's Octoberfest - explains everything, my friend. Tell him to relax for a few months. A very well-done photo, Norbert.

Hey Norbert, looks like one of those stink bugs I've seen before, squeeze it and see what happens. Nice up close and personal shot btw.

Wow! Now I can happily sell all my gear and retire mentioned in the same sentence with Kerrodown. It can't get better!
Thanks a lot,

Hey Bob, I don't find many models willing to volunteer for a shooting. The few I find I can't squeeze.
Take care!

Did you ask him what he's up to? That is how Rupert would have dealt with the situation ... but I'm not so good at that
