Eh Roberto, questo il rigore non lo sbagliava mica....

Trichodes alvearius
(Fabricius 1792)
Coleoptera (Polyphaga)
Cleridae

12-13 mm.

piccolo coleottero dal corpo allungato con elitre mollicce e molto peloso, di colore rosso con le classiche bande nere ad “U” e riflessi metallici.. Si distingue dal simile Trichodes apiarius per la banda nera in mezzo alle elitre e per l'apice rosso delle stesse. Gli adulti di quest’insetto si nutrono di fiori, le larve, come si può intuire dal nome, predano e si nutrono di larve d’imenotteri (api solitarie, vespe ecc.,).

Ciao Silvio,
concordo con Luciano che è una splendida macro per un giorno di festa, tanta è l'esplosione dei magnifici colori ben saturati, hai utilizzato la luce in modo perfetto con un'esposizione che favorisce ogni dettaglio, un risultato stupendo.

Bonjour Silvio,
Ton image est si colorée, on ne peut pas la manquer! Une image bien conçue et réalisée. Le cadrage horizontal est parfait ici, la luminosité extraordinaire. Pas facile de faire une bonne image avec du rouge et du jaune et une lumière asez forte. Bravo donc!
Bon dimanche
Amitiés

A very sharp and colourful Blister Beetle (I guess) atop a flower that looks like it is made of jade, Silvio. This is one of the most pleasing compositions I have seen so far.
Well done and TFs.

Hello Silvio,
The colors in this shot are just so vibrant and beautiful.
The slight reflection off the beetle wings do not detract too much from the striking contrast of the red and yellow.
Great composition and sharpness of details.
