Spotted preying on a Tobacco Hornworm egg (Manduca sexta). Like the adults (http://www.projectnoah.org/spottings/782...), predatory stink bug nymphs are beneficial predators that feed on a variety of crop & garden pests.
Based on its predatory nature, usually in crops & gardens where its prey lives.
The Hornworm's 'horn' is visible poking through the bottom of the egg membrane.
