exosoma lusitanicum
Voilà un insecte qui se manifeste ces jours-ci et ceux que j'ai observés semblaient se trouver particulièrement bien, comme le cliché le démontre, sur des Anthéricum à fleurs de lis.
Le ventre est rouge.
Avec flash / sans trépied.

Sharp and well composed.

A wonderful capture, Claude.
Timing and pose and POV are perfect! : )
The flash brings out the vivid colors on the bugs.
Excellent focus.
Merci pour le partage.

Great macro work, the colours and details are outstanding...

Bonsoir Claude,
Joli duo que tu montres ici. Netteté parfaite et sujet intéressant. L'arrière-plan foncé met encore ces coléoptères en valeur. Joli mouvement des antennes du monsieur.
Bonne soirée
Anne

Wow, Claude,
magnifique, la qualité de ton image. Tout y est, le fond, la netteté, l'action etc.
Je crois qu'il s'agit d' un Chrysomélidé, Lilioceris lilii, qui serait 6-8 mm grand, et non 14-16 mm comme Pyrochroa. Autant plus difficile de faire l'image! Le ventre est rouge , pas noir et les antennes ne sont pas sciés. En tout cas ça joue pour la fleur, une lys.
Merci de partager,
bien à toi,
Dietrich

Hi Claude,
wonderful shot and excellent title.
The macro work looks great.
Vibrant colors, great textures and spectacular detail makes this a real eye catcher.
Very well composed and presented.

'Allo Claude,

And here I thought the title translated as "He ain't heavy; he is my brother..."...

Tfs this very romantic shot... Jay
