longer lady bug w/ antennaes
Hi,
I was taking photographs of flowers and insects on a local lake here in maryland and got a chance to take shots of this bugs. At first I thought they are lady bugs but these are longer and a little bit bigger. Any help is appreciated. Thank you.

These are Red Milkweed Beetles, Tetraopes tetrophthalmus. The are frequently encountered while mating.
