Goodness gracious, here is the veritable enactment of struggle for survival, especially with the parasites doing their act so brazenly, Greg!
Your explanatory note did help in identifying those parasites merging so seamlessly with the scenario.
A fantastic action picture that deserves accolades.
Well done and thanks for sharing this gem of a picture.

What a unique image! The interaction between these two bugs is captured with great clarity and preciseness. You say in your note that this is a common scene but believe me for me it is not. For me this is exclusive. At first I thought this is two of the same kind of insects but reading your note and observing a bit closer one can see the difference. The black and red colour is very striking and spells out war quite clearly. Thanks for sharing. Best regards.

Niezła scenka - w takim powiększeniu nawet potyczka niewielkich owadów może budzić grozę świetna kolorystyka i ostrość.

Hello Grzegorz ,
excellent presentation in its mighty duel. The sharpness is superb and the moment captured is very dramatic,
The nature has its way, and the image is brought by you in a splendid composition.
Congratulations for such an exciting composition.

Great title to a fine capture!
A red-and black Assasin Bug sucking the life out of a red-and black Graphosoma. The POV is great and shows the event with fine sharpness and colours.
I see a fly, parasitised by a red mite, is in on the action too! Life in the raw!
Thanks and have a good week. Here it is now 31 degrees! Pheww!

Świetna scena prosto z życia. Świat owadów nie zawsze jest tak piękny i kolorowy z ich punktu widzenia. Super fotka pełna dramatyzmu, muszka chyba nie chce ich rozdzielić.

great shot of this dramatic scene, i like the close view and all the fine details,
before i read the note, i have not seen the small fly and his red parasite, it's a nice bonus, superb coloration and beautiful contrasting BG
Have a good night
