    What seems to be the problem? Can you post a schematic of the circuit?

    He means an insect "bug" not a problem "bug"

    Take a closer look at the picture. Black wire, just above the alligator clip.

    It's where the term "bug" was supposed to have originated. :)

    Oddly enough, I have been seeing millions of these "stink bugs" this year.

    Growing up, I would only see 2 or 3 of them a year. I remember this because it was when my father would have us bring in a ton of firewood from the outside stack to our basement-indoor wood-pile.

    While my brother filled my arms with a load of firewood, every once in a while a "stink bug" would be right there in my face.

    I have never seen them anywhere but wood-piles... Until this year.

    Now, like cicadas, there are swarms that will fly directly into you. All willy-nilly like ;)

    And windows and siding will have a dozen or two just speckling the place.

    Ate one once! Years ago I was out in the woods picking blackberries off the bushes and popping them in my mouth. One came garnished with a stink bug. Didn't see it. :confused: :eek: :mad:

    Aww. Man.

    That sucks.

    I guess you spit it out and determined the garnish was alive (once) ?

    Is that why your breath stinks? ;)

    It became a standing joke with my friends that were there..."Would you like some stink bug with that".

    I took a lovely shot of a mating pair:
    I didn't realise they stinked otherwise I might not have got as close. We call them shield bugs.

    Ummm this is an 'ALL AGES' forum. Keep your 'bug porn' to yourself.

    Actually, thats one sharp shot. What setup are you shooting?

    That looks like one FAST lens. f2.8? Faster?

    It's a Pentax Super Takumar 55mm F2 lens. It's older than me - the last one was made in 75. I use it on a bellows which explains the tiny depth of field (I was probably using F16).

    It is probably as sharp as anything produced today and cost me £10.
    Heres a crop from the original:

    Hmmph. Beautiful. Considered adding a digital back on it or are you sticking with film?

    and

    What type of film are you shooting?

    The greens remind me of Velvia, but the grain looks like a faster film than ISO 50.

    Is that fuji or agfa film?

    Thanks. It's actually a DSLR, the Pentax DL. Looking at the data I had to use ISO800 to get 1/90 second. Macro uses up a lot of light.
