…7, 8, 9, 10. Ready or not, here I come!

Michael P. and I must confess—we’ve become a little obsessed with photographing Red milkweed beetles (Tetraopes tetraophthalmus). They’re easy to spot (always found on any form of milkweed), stay pretty still for their photo ops and engage in myriad poses for us. At Green Spring Gardens this afternoon we found a plethora of them to photograph. In this shot, the top bug didn’t seem to know that the other bug was beneath the leaf (at least that’s what we surmised) because when he tried to go around the leaf, he seemed startled and pushed the bottom bug off!
