I haven't done a Freaky Friday for a while. A quick search of my recent photographs unearthed this weird insect.
I found this brightly-coloured bug on my kitchen table when I was making my Easy Christmas Wreath.
In front of my children I'd say 'look at the pretty mini-beast'. Fortunately they weren't around to witness me recoil in horror and do a Google image search for bugs. As I'm not a huge fan of insects I didn't enjoy this activity, but I was curious. Apparently this is a shield bug. It may also be a stink bug.
I've never seen anything like it and it was in my house.
Isn't it beautiful / I feel itchy just looking at the photograph of it, urgh.*
