Need to know if they are good guys or bad guys .. they are on the back of a Confederate Rose leaf. Sorry about the fuzzy's .. I was hand holding the camera - not as steady as a tripod.

"The Universe speaks in many languages, but only one voice. It speaks in the language of hope; It speaks in the language of trust; It speaks in the language of strength, and the language of compassion. It is the language of the heart and the language of the soul. But always, it is the same voice. It is the voice of our ancestors, speaking through us, And the voice of our inheritors, waiting to be born. It is the small, still voice that says: We are one. No matter the blood; No matter the skin; No matter the world; No matter the star; We are one. No matter the pain; No matter the darkness; No matter the loss; No matter the fear; We are one. Here, gathered together in common cause. we agree to recognize this singular truth, and this singular rule: That we must be kind to one another, because each voice enriches us and ennobles us, and each voice lost diminishes us. We are the voice of the Universe, the soul of creation, the fire that will light the way to a better future. We are one."

These are Shieldbug (stink bug) nymphs newly hatched, in the family Pentatomidae.

http://bugguide.net/node/view/...

They usually cause no real harm, and there are predators or parasites which use them for their reproduction which will reduce numbers. They are often wasps which will take them to their nest paralysed, they lay eggs which will use the nymphs as food to grow. Other parasites will utilise the growing nymph.

Nature will look after numbers if you let it.
