|[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note|
|Sicus are brownish flies that dwell in herb vegetations, often as fringes of forest or roads. It prefers parts with a lot of Cirsium arvensis. Females are spotted while jumping from leaf to leaf, using their wings only for a short while. Males are willing to mate with every other Sicus, resulting in towers of males on a single female. Thair larvae are endoparasites of bumble bees and have been found in Bombus terrestris, B. pascuorum, B. hortorum and B. lapidarius. |

Ladnie to tak podgladac....Fantastyczna sytuacja a jakie miejsce sobie znalazly.
Doskonale makro.Pozdrawiam Siggi
There is some kind of symmetry or symphony about this mating of the winged insects, Greg.
The colour tone of the image is also made peculiar by the closeness of the space between flower petals.
A truly artistic creation, this.
Thanks and regards.
