Hola José Ramón,
¿Que sería de estos animales si hubieran desarrollado la razón? Bellos tonos veraniegos (de una región húmeda) y gran momento el captado.
Saludos, José M.

Otra excelente entrega Jose, con una composición rayana con la perfección por la belleza de sus colores en contraste con el perfecto fondo, la gran nitidez y foco obtenidos, tanto sobre los insectos apareándose como sobre las flores y el encuadre y punto de vista ideales... sólo me hubiese gustado ver la misma captura sin el disparo del flash... creo que esos pequeños reflejos no hubiesen existido, pero es imposible hacer conjeturas sin conocer las condiciones del momento.
Un gran presentación amigo mío... felicitaciones.
Cordiales saludos... Ricardo

Hello Jose,
Excellent close-up of these two beetles. Great sharpness and lovely colours. The background colour is very fitting but I would have cloned away the flowers up on the left.
Very nice composition!
TFS and regards, Ulla

Muy buenas Jose Ramón
Una foto muy buena, pero es que no les dejas ni intimidad a los pobres......, buen fondo, buena nitida, buena saturación..... buenas toda ella.
Un saludo

Hola Jose,
This is a great macro of a pair of copulating Soldier Beetles. I think you are right: this is a pair of R. Fulva. Fine detail, light and presentation.
TFS and best wishes, Ivan

Hi Jose.
Next your amazing close-up with great subject and outstanding quality. I like your perfect DOF. I in general like slow aperture (up to f/32). Perfect sharpness and details both insects and flowers. Very pleasant soft and impressive lighting. Colour palette and BG are simply charm. Bravo, my friend and TFS.

Hello Jose!
Cantharidae beetles are really rare here on TN so thanks for showing this picture! :)
I like the coposition and the contrast betwen beetles and flower. Also the title is very suggestive ;)
Best regards,
Radomir
