Indoor Winter Nature in New Jersey — Western Conifer Bug.
I originally thought these were Stink Bugs, which also try to come indoors once the temperatures drops outside. They have similar colors, but the Western Conifer Bug is more elongated. I do wonder if the Conifer Bug is the reason many of my pine trees died, and had to be removed. Image taken with a Fuji X-T2 camera and 60 mm f/2.4 macro lens (ISO 200, 60 mm, f/2.4, 1/60 sec) with the pop-up flash.

Claude Monet oil painting in my cabin on the MV World Odyssey. Does anyone know the title? I think I have mentioned that this ship is a bit more opulent than the MV Explorer previously used by Semester at Sea. Image taken with a Leica T camera and 11-23 mm lens (ISO 320, 19 mm, f/4.2, 1/125 sec).
