As usual, you are meticulous about compositional elements, neighbour Anne.
A beautiful capture of mating Asparagus Beetles.
The features and colours on the insects are quite distinct and attractive.
Thanks for sharing this picture.

Hello Anne,
You can't get much more detailed then this shot, I wonder if they realized they would be seen all over the world;) Your macro image shows these love birds or should I say (love bugs) perfectly and in beautiful natural colors.
I used to grow asparagus years ago, but can't remember ever seeing any of these unique looking insects. Great capture!!

Hello Anne,
nice to see you again, hope you are doing well.
This a very good macro-shot. the main subject in good focus with fine details and still stand out well from the blurry BG.
I also like the nice and soft colours.
Well done, my friend.

Ciao Anne. Great POV excellente details with beautiful colours. Well done!
