A Bug's Life

I saw these little critters while out walking the dogs.  I think they are some sort of Cardinal Beetle.  There were lots of them, having a feeding frenzy on some thistles.  Some of them were also getting a bit amorous....






I wonder if they had been waiting for the rain to stop.  If so, I hope they got everything done, as it is raining again today....

Even over-educated fleas do it...

If you had made a recording of those bugs, you could be sited for having a porno film on the internet. I bet Riot Kitty would have paid good money to see it.

Isn't this a movie? "Eat, Drink, Man, Woman" or something? I like your version.

Terrific pics! So good I got the willies. Not so much from the red ones, but from the little black ones. (Those ARE bugs, right?)

Looks likes the creepy red bugs have some groupie black bugs in attendance. And the red bugs don't seem to mind an audience.....

Wow, these are some amazing shots! I've never seen bugs like that before, so you'll have to let us know if you figure out what they are for certain.

Nice shots. Don't think I have ever come across Cardinal bugs but they look way better than the Asian roaches we have over here.
