WOW! Magical. What kind of Bugs are they?
Sorry Don, I replied to you almost immediately but in the wrong place. Put it in the comments section instead. Cheers Val
This is awesome! Kind of gross but really good!! I would be able to get that close!
Thankyou for the lovely comment, They were not at all worried by me until I got up close and personal with the camera, then they started to disperse.
Wooow they look like little jewels. Great capture !
Thanks very much, I just wish I knew how to insert the extra photos on the side. Its was just amazing watching them peel away from the pile. They were following each other almost nose to tail as they left the odd coloured one behind. Cheers Val
Promiscuous comes to mind!! lol Sorry Don, I wouldn’t have a clue, maybe some of the other Bubblers can help with id. Did you spot the one thats different. Its on the right of center frame. When I first got there it was not visible at all. The others were piled on top. I can only suppose it is the female. Cheers and thanks for the lovely comments and fav.
Great shots Val !Possibly Cotton Harlequin Bugs, but I’m not sure …
I thought when I saw them that they might be Harlequin Bugs, but as the name just popped into my head with no basis in scientific fact whatsoever, I didn’t like to include it. LOL It just seemed appropriate.! Probably saw something like it on RB. LOL
I have never seen so many all together Val, great capture.
Many thanks for your lovely comment. Cheers Val
Val, there’s a group called I.D. Me~Nature Photos Only where you could probably get a positive I.D.
Thanks Trish, I’ll check them out.
Superb colours, looks like an Harlequin party was on! Nice capture Val
This is crazy!! What a fantastic shot – so unusual and bright :)
I have certainly never seen anything like this before, I presume it has something to do with mating pheromones, but who knows, maybe they do this regularly. lol Thanks so much for all your lovely comments and favs, also for adding me to your watchlist. Cheers Val
WOW how cool! Love the colours!
