hi friends ı think they are cardinal beetles if ı wrong please correct me ,have a nice day.

The cardinal beetle is a brightly-coloured red or orange beetle with a black face and is approximately 20 mm long.

It preys on other insects and is normally fond on flowers at the edges of woodland.

It is a strong flier. The cardinal beetle is bright red; in that way it warns predators that it is toxic.

hi Ridvan
a nice macro shot with artistic play. I like the moment, the POV and colors. It could be better on DOF (2,8 only and 250 are not nécessary)...and a frame.

well done

These beetles surely have chosen a seemingly comfortable leaf for making love, Ridvan :-).
On your part, you have chosen the most appropriate point of view to shoot them.
It is a great composition.
The female is apparently much bigger than the male.

¡Hay qué ver los estragos de la Primavera..!
Saludos Ridvan.
