Hi Lou,

Congratulations on # 600. You got there much faster than I did! What a beauty you chose to celebrate with. Two wonderful beetles with marvelous metallic colors and patterns and fine details. I don't think I have seen the black and white one before. Here's to the next 600 - I look forward to seeing them.

Hello Lou,
Congratulations on your 600th posting on TN!
You mark the occasion with a fine capture of these two Pentatomid Bugs in copulo, the sharpness and colours with a good BG contrast showing them up well.
The female is either an albino or this species show marked sexual dimorphism!
Thanks and have a good weekend,

Hearty congratulations on your 600th post on TN, Laurens!!
This very unusual picture makes this post a truly remarkable one.
These are two different bugs in terms of their appearance and if they are mating here, it is an unbelievable happening.
The picture is absolutely beautiful from every point of view.

Hello Laurens,
How strange to see a red and a white Bug in cop!! Perhaps they couldn't find a right partner!! A very fine capture showing excellent sharpness and lovely colours against the soft background.
TFS and best wishes, Ulla
