[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
This pictures demonstrates communication of any kind between two specimens of Malachius (bispustulatus?) (Coleoptera, Malachiidae.

There are about 16 different Malachius species in middle Europe, often not easily to discriminate. The small species (less than 10 mm) are found on flowering grass or also on blossoms. The two specimens shown here had an encounter on Chrysanthemum leucanthemum (Asteraceae).

This is a shot with my new Olympus Digital Macro lens.

The picture has been taken in bright sun light.
