Ornate Shield Bug found sitting on eggs near a river in the Bornean jungle. One of the uncommon species of insects that are "brooders", they take care of their young. I walked past this spot everyday on the way to my research site, it was there protecting the eggs for at least 5 days after I first spotted her.
