PHOTO HUNTERS: SMELLY

photohunters

This week’s theme is on SMELLY,
The caterpillar is not SMELLY but what it is eating is SMELLY.
The leaves have a strong SMELLY pungent smell.
These are the type of SMELLY leaves that will attract caterpillars.
It’s the leaves of the Kaffir lime tree.
The Thais use a lot of these in their cooking.

SMELLY01

This is definitely SMELLY.
It’s called a Pentatomidae (SMELLY BUG).
Don’t ever disturb it as it will emit a pungent liquid
which it very SMELLY.

Love the insects but I probably wouldn't want to go near one, especially the bright green caterpillar.

Have a great weekend, Criz :)

Great photos. Kaffir linme is excellent. We get similar shield beetles in our garden. The smell they excrete is not nice. Happy weekend

Ahhhhhh.... you change your blog theme! I have to get down to mine, thanks to you.

The photots of the fat, juicy caterpillar and that bug are so awesome! I've never seen such a fat caterpillar before. (Oh no, I'm speaking as if I'm preparing to eat it. hehehe.....)

I love the smell of Kaffir lime and leaves though.

Sarge Charlie said...

us southern folks call the bottom photo a stink bug, never saw the worm.

Caroline said...

Great photos! Super choices for the theme. I've have seen that stink bug before

eastcoastlife said...

My dear Criz,
You've been tagged!

tanabata said...

I haven't been able to view flickr recently but I'm sure you're photos are suitably smelly! Thanks for visiting!

Paulie said...

Here is the answer to your query on my blog:

"Hmm.. I guessed you must be busy with card making this week to be in PH. Anyway, I love all the cards, especially those autumn ones. No intention of using real leaves? you can spray a coat of lacquer on them you know? :)"

i am not too busy anymore. . . I just chose to not participate -- if you go to the first page of TNChick's site and scroll down a couple posts you will see my answer to why I am not doing pH's anymore. I will miss it.

Thanks for the tips on real leaves -- that might be fun to try. I might do that one day soon. I didn't know you could do that. Thanks again.

BTW, you have a great bunch of entries for the PH theme this week! I always enjoyed your photos.

A. said...

Sorry to be so late with my comments - been travelling this weekend.
Yours are great shots but I have to say I'm not too fond of insects. I give them all a wide berth, whether smelly or not.

Talk..to..Grams said...

Thanks for your visit! Great photo's! Have a nice Sunday.

-TNChick- said...

Oh, nice shots! I think that first one looks very similar to a tobacco worm! Neat!

Amy said...

I hope it didn't release the smell when you took the picture!

tiny london said...

Wow - what beautiful smelly pictures!
