Who are these?

I found these in the woods near a creek.
Stokes County, NC
What a lovely image of mating Red Net Winged Beetles, Dictyopterus aurora. You can see additional images on BugGuide.
Wow! Thanks so much for naming my mystery beetle! Do you stay up all night answering people’s emails with crazy bug questions?
We answer letters when we are able. We also sleep when we can, but our schedule is sometimes erratic.
