Mating Common Red Soldier Beetles

Photo Description
Since we let a lot of our garden go wild we have seen a large influx of new wildlife and beautiful wild flowers. Early one evening before sundown, in early July, as we were admiring a patch of pretty clover and dead nettle, I noticed a tiny red thing on the end of a grass flower stalk. Looking closer we saw these two red beetles mating. After taking the photo we went in to investigate on a search engine and discovered them to be what are know as common red soldier beetles which are seen in the UK in July and August. Well maybe as they were mating we might see quite a few more in years to come.
