While doing dishes this morning this bug jumped out of nowhere on the edge of my dish pan....Think it heard the weather forecast that the snowfall amount coming our way today and tomorrow will be be from 6 to 10 inches...That's all we need:) The wind is blowing strongly as of right now. The bug disappeared after its photo session and wish the snow would do the same thing!:)

Best View in Light Box where you can see the Box Elder Bug even bigger with red eyes that matches the dish pan:) It is actually rather pretty! I appreciate that this type of bug doesn't bite.
