pretty orange bug orgy
Took this picture today 9-2-06 near the confluence of the Missouri and MIssissippi Rivers. There were hundreds of pairings of these bugs getting busy. My 7-year-old daughter informed me that they were mating. No more Animal Planet for her! Or that does make a certain talk a little easier…..

Hi Angie,
Thanks for contributing this wonderful image of mating Pennsylvania Leatherwings, Chauliognathus pennsylvanicus.
