Found one on me last week tried to get the camera out for a picture but every time I turned my arm for the shot it kept moving round. Lost it somehow

Can confirm the smell thing. Several years ago I had a green shield bug in the house and cupped it in my hands in order to liberate it back into the garden, whatever it is they produce that smells got all over my hands and would not wash off, absolutely disgusting, smells of rotting meat..... lesson learnt.
