[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Everywhere I go with my macro, insects are getting it on. I keep think of the Cole Porter song "Bee's do it". This couple were enjoying themselves on a two foot wide path at the top of a mountain sides cliff face. They had a very nice view. This couple are not the nicest looking insects but they are interesting. What they are I dont know but they are each about 3cm or an inch long.

Hi Matthew!
Good photo, nice moment, details and colours. I like slightly dark mood here.

Hello Matthew,

This longhorn beetles pair is Moechotypa diphysis (Lamiinae, Crossotini or alternatively Hecyrini).

Best regards,
