I prefer to call them Shield Bugs rather than Stink Bugs! :-)
Anyway, I found these two sunning themselves on Artemisia absinthium (Wormwood) last Wednesday. I enjoy finding them around October each year. Their colouring interests me.
These two may be the same species although there is a bit of a difference in antennal markings.
I think these Shield Bugs are probably Oncocoris sp. Hemiptera : Pentatomidae.
