we have those stink bugs over here as well.

the wasp, if like our black wasps, hunt for spiders to lay their eggs in.. not one to worry about. we have one called a tarantula wasp and it's so big that all you want to do is run.. it also is looking for spiders, rather large ones..

The "thing with wings" looks like some kind of black grasshopper...very odd.

Very nice pictures as usual

Stink Bugs, that's it, i knew you had a name for them that was slightly different to ours!

I have since found out that the black thing with wings is in fact a ichneumon wasp of some sort, am still trying to find out the exact species though.

Alison, I believe a stink bug is a Pentatomidae and one of the best identification sites I have found for the UK is http://www.kendall-bioresearch.co.uk/general1.htm

On this side of the Atlantic it is definately www.bugguide.net and here's a link http://bugguide.net/node/view/68439

Bug ID? www.bugguide.net is on automatic on my browser.
