Bedroom or dining room?
Dear Lisa Anne and Daniel,
"Must You Do That While I’m Eating?" Think of this bug love episode as nature’s own shunga, especially as its main characters are Japanese beetles. Isn’t it bizarre that the bee-mimic hover fly (in addition to being there in the first place) is actually HOLDING this flower’s stamen while it slurps? Taken in Pennsylvania on a July afternoon in 2001.

Hi Jim and Sandy,
Thank you for this humorous image that will get archived to numerous pages: Beetles 11, Flies 3 and Bug Love 4.
