Red stink bugs on a dandelion straw

Apparently they are called both Red stink bugs and sloe bugs. I spotted them on the wisteria flowers and then looked down at my feet and saw these three on a dandelion 'straw' as I gather the flowering head is sometimes called.

Their latin name is Dolycoris baccarum, but despite their common name of sloe bug, neither the larvae nor the adults feed on Sloe.

It think this is suitable for a Tiny Tuesday challenge, but it has also been a slow day for me.
