Soldier Beetles

A pair of Red Soldier Beetles (Rhagonycha Fulva) doing what comes naturally. Seen whilst on a walk at Carr Mill Dam, St Helens. Picture taken, hand held, using a +4 macro filter on an 18-270 lens. Sony SLT A65. (Ohhh, the titles I thought up for this one, ....'Lights, Camera, Action'.. or.. 'Go Away, I Can't Concentrate'.., or, most appropriate for 'Soldier' Beetles 'Make Love, Not War'........... You name it...there are loads. LOL)
