It looks that the fly need to "fight" for its flower Catherine! ;>
The small malachid beetle is alredy waiting to keep some part of flower for itself ;>
Funny title and - as always - very good quality of image. I like that both insect species are identify and even details of their describtions are provided.
Have a nice Sunday and all the best in 2010!

A really fine capture showing these two insects both sharply in focus on the Scabious flower. I've captured them both here too but not as well as you have! Excellent details and colours and a beautiful reminder of summer!
TFS and best wishes, Ulla

Simply stunning close-up. I am impressive with pictured subject and with blameless quality of the image. DOF is great as well as reproduction of all insects and tiny details of the charming flower. Smooth BG is very pleasant too and decorate the main subject perfectly. Excellent job. TFS and hearty wishes for coming Year.
