Workshop Note
Some of my friends asked me if I was able to free that precious beetle trapped in a spider web: Yes, I was. But the beetle that seemed to be moving gently in the breeze turned out to be stiff and dead already. It was already gone to heaven, so to say.

So, in order to cheer you up a little bit, I am adding this lively couple of Alpine longicorns seen passionately in love last summer on a hot sunny day at at high noon in the Vienna Woods - Location: Höllenstein, Kaltenleutgeben, 600m above sea level. Not a frequent sight there, either, but an encouraging proof that the species might recover again in a few places where much care is taken in protecting nature. The Vienna Woods embracing the city of Vienna in the west have been declared a protected area just a few years ago (Biosphärenpark Wienerwald).
