Entangled beetles mate in a fog of lust,
soldiers on leave consumed in golden fire.
Soldier beetle | Cantharidae
Do you have a publisher for a book of these?
Lovely macro shot! It must have been hard to focus on that insect! The shallow depth of field has worked really well at isolating the insect from its surroundings, and the colours in the background are gorgeous! Well done!
Naughty insects! But wait, who’s the voyeur! LOL
Love the lighting! Well done!
They know they are safe from Spider clutches.(Queen Anne’s Lace seems to put off spiders. Or so am told.
Hee. Bug love. Nice capture!
Must. Not. Stare.
So natural, these two. What great coloring on them!… and what amazing work on the capture. Never cease to amaze R.L.!!
Thanks Diane. A small valentine.
A wonderful buggy shot with a fabulous dof.
