Hi Thodoris,
a lot going on in Lipinitsa.
Seems to be a good place for lovers.
Very good details in the white blossoms, the burnet, and the love beetles. The jewel beetle to the right could take just a little bit of PP lighting up all over.
Enjoyable document. A pleasure to have the chance here on TN to see the nature of Lipinitsa.
With thanks, and best regards,

PS: The ID of those two mating beetles may be: "Rhagonycha fulva".
