[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
The red colour of this bug, Graphosoma lineatum, appears bleached by the sunlight.

The species is a mmediterranean one but enlarges its areal to the north. It is not present in northern Germany. Thus, the Ruhr-District, where I took the picture is one of the most northern places of the species.

Hello Peter,
impressive macro shot! Great sharpness, fine details and excellent light.
The background and the colors are fantastic!
Well done

Hi Peter,
Really nice. I love those stripes and the texturing of its body. A very unique species for sure. Why would it bleach in color? Maybe it changes color with maturity, like dragonflies do. Just curious is all. Well done.
