What a beautifull shot of this pair of Cicindela in mating. This not only perfect capture my friend, it is also a significant document. Splendid composition.
TFS and regards,

Ciao Marcello, bella coppia in azione, splendidamente a fuoco ambo gli insetti, nitidi e senza riflessi, non facile, ma che sei bravissimo ormai lo sappiamo tutti:)
Se non ci risentiamo Buona Pasqua, ciao Silvio

This is your third picture of tiger beetle species and third perfect presentation of my favourite insect group! Fantastic to see the subspecies which is endemic to Sicily (I have to say that it is still absent in my entomological collection, even if I posses some 15% of described taxa). Anyway, I always like to see something new and unusual, but when I see pictures of Cicindelidae which show tiger beetles not observed by me in the wild - I am especially happy! :>:>:>
So many, many thanks Marcello!!!
Best greetings from Lodz! (where no tiger beetle species is still active now... :< )

Thanks for your kind words on my recent image, Marcello.
Raynox 200 seems to be a powerful lens. You have captured these two green mating bugs in the form of a macro extremely efficiently.
Marvellous details and colours.
Well done and TFS.

Excellente image de ces deux Cicindelas en pleine action. Je connais ces insectes et je sais combien ils sont rapides. Mais heureuesement qu'il étaient occupés! C'est une image pour Radomir!
Un grand merci et bonne Fêtes de Pâques

amazingly well detailed close-up of that very pretty and colourful couple of Cicindela beetles in seemingly passionate loving embrace. These beetles being just as volatile and alert as flies, it even more impressing to see such a closely and well appoached, well detailed presentation of this species. Thank you!
With best regards,

Oportuna captura Marcello. En general bien captada a pesar de ese potente sol que tanto molesta por los reflejos y las sombras. Bello color. Ya tengo ganas de encontrar alguna vez una Cincindela. Buena Semana Santa (Pascua).
