    I have no idea what they are. But they come back to my yard every year.
    D200, 60mm micro 1/30@f20, iso 100

  2. They look like the sort of things that inspire sci fi movie producers

    Don't know what they are but they are quite colorful. Nice shots.
  4. Really nice. How big are they?
  5. Very cool colors on them, nice shot.
  6. Nice creature!

    That's Jadera haematoloma (Red-shouldered Bug), and belongs to the family Rhopalidae (Scentless Plant Bugs).

    Thanks everyone for looking and commenting

    Alex I would say the largest is maybe 3/4" long. I think I would be better off with a 105mm lens. Seems you have to get realy close with the 60mm and alot of time at the cost of light.

    Hary thanks for the I.D. I guess I was not that far off as I called them Red Bugs. I wil now use Red shouldered bug. Thanks

    Mart61 thanks for looking. I don't know if they bite, Probably not. :eek: 

  12. No, these don't bite. They are sucking plant sap.
