08.14.07 STINKBUG TO THE RESCUE!
This jewel-like creature is an insect described as a "shield-shaped true bug, superfamily Penatomoidea" by Wikipedia. It gets its more common name due to its tendency to release a foul-smelling liquid when disturbed. I am happy to report learning that at least one species of this bug likes to eat Mexican bean beetles!
