This is yet another funny looking bug that decided to pass thru my garden. This one was a little strage looking with his "horn" on the back side. I watched it as it walked up the tree and then he stopped and stood on his tippy toes and curled his horn under himself and poked it in the tree bark! It was so weird!! Not sure what he called his self doing, but he soon went on about his merry way.
Can anyone help ID it so I can find out what he was doing?
Not the best pic, but you can sorta tell what I mean.
I copied this from a page about pecan pests:
Both southern green stink bugs and leaf-footed bugs attack pecan nuts. They puncture nuts before shell hardening and after shell hardening. If feeding is early the nuts drop.
Much more info on the link you have Panamoncreel!
I have been having some strange looking insects this year! Guess I am really paying attention more this year than last year.
Ain't Nature grand?!
