Sundance kids:

TheseFirebugs (Pyrrhocoridae: Pyrrhocoris apterus; Feuerwanze; Punaise soldat) have taken a sunbath under my Linden tree in Marly/Switzerland. They overwinter as adults and feed on the tough seeds of Linden and some other seeds. They occur over much of Europe and Asia.

I cropped the pic, increased saturation by 12% because of a loss while downsizing the image, sharpened it.

Hello Dietrich!
Here I am again after so long break ;)
Another interesting picture with interesting note :)
Moreover, I have to say that this is one the best of your macros :) Good details, nice POV, and saturation.
TFS and all the best!

What a lively bunch of these Sundance Kids, Dietrich!
Looks like they have come out of hibernation and are limbering up for the summer.
Very attractive picture.

It is a very eye catching photo, with all this colouful and croded composition, great details too.
I like thay look like 38 and a half mini african masks :)
Thanks and best regards.

Hallo Dieter,
Freude Dich wieder hier zu treffen..mit einem sehr interessanten Bild von einem Feuerwanzen-Corps. In Frankreich nennt man sie scheinbar gendarmes oder les Suisses (Uniform).
Bin gespannt, was noch alles zum Vorschein kommt.
Liebe Grüsse
