[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note [French]
This insect is 8 to 14 mm long. It is visible on the flowers of low-growing plants and shrubs, Umbelliferous and fruit trees. It is considered a pest since it sometimes attacks vines and the green kernels of cereal plants. It is very common in spring and summer.

Brrrrrr - we love to be captured from our dear friend Didier - and we always pose when he is outside to make a shot of us ...

It seems the bugs all know you, Didier, otherwise I can't understand how you do that!
Amazing again, so sharp, so beautiful, thanks and greetings

Hi Didier.
Your in-flight series is fantastic. This simmer I have tried to picture of this insect but have got only ultra-close-up pictured. Superb work with macro-equipment. Technique is great. My best regards and compliments.
