Green Stink Bug Nymph

This morning, I found this very pretty bug on my porch:

As it turns out, this is a nymph (that is, juvenile) Green Stink Bug (Chinavia hilaris), a native insect which I see fairly frequently around here. I just cannot get over the gorgeous colors and patterns on this creature! These bugs eat all sorts of different plants, but they've not (yet) become so numerous that they cause problems in my yard, so I'm happy to have them around.

Keep on munching and growing, pretty little creature!
