Well-Nigh Wordless Wednesday: Love is in the Air

Well, I’ve had pretty much zero time for blogging since the last post on Friday and won’t have time to blog again until Sunday, so this is going to be a light week. You’ll get a double dose of Swarm Sunday this week, but until then I can at least throw a photo up for Well-Nigh Wordless Wednesday.  This week, I present a pair of soldier beetles in love:

Found these little lovebirds (and hundreds of their closest relatives) on a flower about three weeks ago at the Duke Gardens in Durham, NC.  The gardens were so wonderful that I actually took more photos of flowers than I did bugs.  That’s a rare thing for me!  But now I feel like I need to get in all the insect photos I can.  It’s cooled down a lot over the last few days, so it’s only a matter of time before winter sets in.
