these bright orange beetles showed up in May.
Can anybody help me to identify them, please?

fajne zdjęcie Marialuisa. Wygladaja tak jakby przegladały sie w lustrze. Dobra ostrość i poprawna kompozycja.

Great photo... I'm by no means an expert in beetle identification but they look a lot like Pyrochroa coccinea (Cardinal Beetle) to me. The Cardinal Beetle is normally more red so these may be a different species of Pyrochroa or a related species?
Hope this helps!
