Good examples of maximising the impact by getting down to their level.

"critter" is English-language slang for "creature". It is informal and a bit humorous.

The word comes from a farming culture where people often had little formal education. So sometimes it is used as a small joke to imply that the speaker is pretending to be not well educated, or is ignoring or rejecting their education.

Google is good. Search on define: critter and it will give you a "creature" definition.

The define: word trick is better than most dictionaries.

But it is always OK to ask, here in the forums. The answer you get will be tailored to how the word was used here. That may be difficult to figure out from what the dictionary says.

By the way, your pictures are excellent -- great focus and colors. :D

I think that last one is some kind of Hemiptera, but not Pentatomidae. All the pentatomids I know do not have hair even in the earliest stages.

Allow me to toss a wrench in the gear box, "stink bugs." :lol: Of course I would call them critters also. In a salty sailors vocabulary, it can mean something entirely different though, something a bit more socialized. :lol: However, these are some pretty nice shots there Antonio, critters or not. :D

I use it regularly for spell-checks when the MS one is not available e.g. when posting to forums.

This first is a nymph of Nezara viridula
Second also Pentatomidae maybe carpacoris?
The third is not easy due to the difficult angle but I guess it's not Pentatomidae

len, thanks for the assistance with ID.

I see you have not been around here much -- welcome back!

Of curiosity, I checked your previous posts and noticed that you had asked a question that had not been answered online, HERE. I added a short reply -- hope it is helpful.
