Old friend Written by Wiepkjen Last summer the watermint in our garden was infested with these fellows. Hundreds of them. Now, when the first few appear again, it almost feels like greeting old friends.

I like the shiny blue colour. Do they emit a bad odor? Cheers, Ann Thanks for visiting my sight. I suppose they painted the barns yellow was for that reason you mentioned, cheerful.
