[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Cotton Stainer Beetles are colourful insects by and large. I found this one resting on lush green leaves today morning and took a few shots of it with my Sony compact. Here is one of them.

Pyrrhocoridae is a family of insects with more than 300 species world-wide. Many are red-coloured and are known as red bugs and some species are called cotton stainers because their feeding activities leave an indelible yellow-brownish stain on cotton crops. A common species in parts of Europe is the firebug, and its genus name Pyrrhocoris and the family name are derived from the Greek roots for fire "pyrrho-" and bug "coris". Members of this family are often confused with, but can be quickly separated from, Lygaeidae by the lack of ocelli (simple eyes) on the top of the head.

Hello Ram
Une très belle photo, de très belles couleurs et des détails intéressants.
L'environnement vert crée un bon contraste. Les ombres sur le corps sont un peu dommage.
Bonne journée
