Stinging Nettles

Dear Shivi,
Where is the bug?  All we see are leaves, and they appear to be Stinging Nettles which are pictured on The Tortoise Table.  According to the Royal Horticultural Society:  “stinging nettles (
Urtica) have stinging hairs that make them quickly apparent to the gardener when weeding.”  According to The Poison Garden:  “Brushing the plant produces a stinging on the skin of varying intensity.”
