Macro photo of five-spot burnet moths mating on flowers
Taken with Olympus E500 digital camera on July 16th, 2007. Click picture for larger view.
In this picture I believe you can see some five-spot burnets (Zygaena trifolii) mating, but it could also be the similar six-spot burnet (Zygaena filipendulae) because the spots can be merged. If anyone is an expert on this please let me know by leaving a comment. I would also like to know what the flowers are called.
Anyways. It looks like the insects are having a really good time 😉
Check out my other insect photos.
