A rosemary beetle and a shield bug meeting for a chat on a lichen covered twig.
Two totally different looking bugs and contrasting colors, excellent trio Carol.
Yes, the contrasts work really well here Carol. Lovely series.
Wonderful captures Carol, i love the colours of the Rosemary beetle!
Friendly bugs you have there . I love the reosemary beetle, so beautiful. 3 lovely shots. Moira
Quote: Yes, the contrasts work really well here Carol. Lovely series
I quite agree
Two lovely insects posing beautifully. Do you think they say to each other "Let's nip round to Carol's and get famous?"
briliant set of captures carol cracking colour and detail v2 for me today a beauty nice one
Lovely set. Up to your usual high standard.
Thought: any a chance of a few landscape shots of the paradise you and all your insect friends live in?
The hardest part of macros is getting the shallow depth of field in the best alignment of the subject and Carol your knowledge in this area is always spot on. Excellent, as well as the subject matter. Great work
Excellent images once again Carol. That Rosemary beetle is so beautiful!
Excellent and wonderful set of images,very well done,
Three beauties Carol, full of super detail and lovely colours.
Another great set
V1 he seems to have lost a bit of his antennae
Cant decide between 2 & 3 ... so a half vote each
Love the insect with his bright courting coat.
Sorry once again, Carol: revisited and can only confirm what I said earlier: three excellent shots, with the rosemary beetle a new one to me......don't recall seeing this species before. As you say, seems to be an amicable encounter! Do like the almost iridescent quality of the rosemary......most attractive patterning too.
Love those Regency stripes your little beetle wears and the way the antenae of the Shield Bug in V2 actually echo this with little stripes of its own and co-ordinating tones to boot!! V2 gets my vote this morning.
Excellent set, with superb sharpness & color.
Carol U are right, The inmate is a naughty fellow.
I never realised how beautful these little bugs could be until I discovered your pics. The rosemary beetle is a star with the metalic sheen.
awesome set even the eyes are in focus and that striped beetle very pretty
Great set Carol. For me 2and3 are on a par.
Outstanding detail, wonderful.
It's Hillary and Tensing racing for the top!
Friends for ever.
A fine trio Carol,
What a pretty beetle, three cracking images and it looks like you have had some lovely sunshine too.
Morning Carol more great shots , weather looks promising today, regards gray.
"Strange Liasons" - well done, with fine detail...BIll
Another first for me, seeing this rosemary beetle - and what a fine looking lady she is Super set as always Carol
What a lovely shiney armour he has there Carol,

Three great shots again, Carol, beautifully recorded.
