It is just an allegory of romatism taken from the soap-operas, don't you think. Two lovers in pink bedding :-)

The lovers here belong to the species Oxythyrea funesta (Poda, 1761), family Scarabeidae, subfamily Cetoninae

Larvae of this elegant beetles leave in soil eating plant roots, the adults are usually found on flowers, particularly in mountain areas. The species occurs mostly in south-eastern Europe reaching the Carpathian arch to the north. It occurs also in Poland but is quite rare and maybe found in south-eastern corner of Poland (eg. in Bieszczady Mountains).

Beautifull executed with good contrast and sharpness along the back of the top scarab. The framing of the flower around the two lovers works very well in this case. Excellent!

Hi Michal,
An excellent shot. The composition is perfect. The colors are beautiful, and sharp detail. Exposure is perfect. Nice work!

Very Sharp macro!

HI Michal, this is very sharp and exposure is excellent. Even if the bugs are black, there is excellent details in it. The light pink and the light green contrast very well with the bugs. What are they doing ? Just joking ;o)
I was out of points yesterday, so here is your score

Hello Michal!
Lovely capture.Colors,POV,framing and composition are wonderful.

Une image un peut du style de paparazzi ;-) laissez leur un peut d'intimité voyons.

le re-cadrage a été bien fait bien que je ne pratique pas cette facon de re-taillée les photo.
Pour ce qui est des couleurs elles sont interessantes et le noir tranche tres bien sur le rose.
C'est jolie bravo.
