Dear Luciano,
you did a good job in depicting the beetle, the beetle is neat with the colors and the details, the background is nicely out of focus. It is certainly not the bug Pyrrhocoris, but Strangalia, a Ceramycid beetle, probably Strangalia (=Stenurella) bifasciata. Thanks for presenting the pic to us.
Sincerely, Dieter

Ciao Luciano, bell'emitytero con splendida nitidezza ed ottimi dettagli, grande messa a fuoco, bravo, ciao Silvio
