Drinker and Stinker by MMerritt


Available to buy on…

A stink bug and a fire ant on the plant Richardia scabra.

Photo taken in Pasco county Florida.

The plant is not native to the area. The tiny white flowers usually have six petals, but I have seen them have only three, and as many as eight.

I’m also on youtube, and have some cool videos there: http://www.youtube.com/user/FLPhotoCatcher
