Hi Michal,
A nice capture of this blister beetle. Very well composed and well timed. It would have been better if the head also was in focus. Thanks a lot for sharing.

Hello Michal,
Very interesting and unusual capture of this take off! Nice colours and composition. I agree with you for the family and genus. But I don't know the species which can be found in Morocco. Cheers,
