[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Couples of Cantharidae-species can be observed relatively often as they stay together for many hours.
Here, I show a couple of Cantharis fusca within a beautiful white flower.

Ciao Peter, superb macro, lovely couple in nice action on a beautiful white flower, splendid sharpness and fine details, very well done my friend, have a good Sunday, ciao Silvio

Superb image of Cantharis Couple, Peter.
The white flower seems to be the right choice of place for their mating ritual.
The features and colours of these insects are well captured in this macro shot.
