I saw these two doing 'what comes naturally' yesterday, but noticed that they weren't a matching pair. Maybe they're hoping to introduce a new colour into the species!
Great Macro, nice colours
I wonder which one is Felix - a stunning s et again Carol...Bill
V2 in particular is stellar, Carol.
No butts about it.
Wonderful macros Carol. The light and clarity is spot on. Excellent detail. Well done
Hi Carol - superb set of images - don't like this new voting system - they are making things too complicated!
Outstanding set Carol, excellent colours and detail
What clarity for a compact camera Carol!
Quote: Hi Carol - superb set of images - don't like this new voting system - they are making things too complicated!
I agree, it's too easy to click the wrong button. I don't like it at all!!
Carol, this is a super set. I never realised how colourful bugs are until I started looking at your work. Very educational! Great work!!!!
A good set of images, but I do not know what they where thinking about
Another superb set of images, Carol, cracking details and colours.
Amazing macro images Carol.
I really don't know how you keep finding these fabulous insects Carol,but keep em coming !! Superb detail once again and fabulous macro photography...
love the mismatched colours adds to the interest, might be big in the bug world too. congrats on staces award. lesley
interesting shot very detailed
Intriguing, a sort of mixed marriage.
Great sequence Carol, maybe the top one just faded a bit in the sun.
Macros don't really get much better than this! In the thumbnail reminded me of those things children often have fitted on the ends of their pencils!
Superb detail ... Cant really add to that
There's a lot of natural variation in many insects and I'd guess these are from the same species or close enough to hybridise. Wonderful pictures, I think I'd choose no.1 for a poster.
fantastic set of close up's carol brilliant detail and colour v2 for me today nice one
you have some hot bug over there all great shot as alway
What a fabulous colourful pair Carol. Superb detail in all but prefer V1 would be my choice here.
LOvely detailed shot,,no doubt if they manage it you will be there with camera in hand,
Excellent set brill colour and detail
good images.makes me think:this bugs are from the same species,or they are trying something new?)
Your usual top standard Carol. superb. I see they've been at the local water supply like many of your previous beasties Excellent.
Beautiful as always colourful as always and sharp detailed as always. A stunning set here Carol. Gary
Excellent set Carol, superb detail! I need to hunt more for different bugs, all I seem to find are horrible flies or ants!
Like V4 All of them are good though
superb images again carol.ray
Always technically superb and interesting images. I think you must be an entomologist at heart Carol.
Back to the bonking bugs! and how beautifully coloured they both are. A wonderful set of close-ups, Carol.
very odd looking indeed Carol, and a beautiful series too.
have a great weekend
Am anxious to see what the offspring look like!
the detail is incredible!
Super multicoloured bugs on the way.
Fabulous. I'm amazed at how many beautiful bugs you find. This set is just brilliant.
Superb serie> again! +++++
A superb set Carol - the patterns and colours of these shield bugs remind me of some natives shields - perhaps thats where they get the name from
An awesome set of macros Carol, so well spotted and captured with some fantastic detail and color.
Everything about these images is first class.
Superb set. I missed a week long uploads.
Stunning macro's, completely worthy of all the awards.
Super set. The last time I saw bugs as colourful as this was on the Gold Coast of Australia. Sylvia
Back to back they faced each other and all that, maybe they just didnt' care, four super shots Carol
All the above. Great set.
Besides being top quality shots the colour just jumps out at you,
wonderful set Carol
a superb set missed yr gallery some stunning shots while i was away
Great shot set - they remember me of my childhood when I played with thees very comun bugs many times - the popular name for them it is '' prist's bulls'' - I dont know where is comeing from
Superb - Norma
spot on shot
Excellent picture, what I believe the colour and the design must be different for male and female bug of this family.
Anyway very well spotted and great detail. Excellent.
V2 IS OUTSTANDING,CORAL...CAROL
