Dear Scientist,
I’ll be very glad if you’d help
with identification of the bugs
that I encountered in the forest
recently.

Firebugs from Turkey

Dear Ercan,
We are not scientists, nor do we have a terribly extensive formal background in science.  We are artists who are trying to promote a better understanding of insects and their importance to the web of life on our planet.  These are Firebugs, Pyrrhocoris apterus, a benign species found throughout much of Europe.
