    Not a milkweed bug but possibly related?

    Totally unidentified, not a longhorn so any clues apreciated, I could not find anything like it.

    Graphosoma lineatum

    Haematomola dorsatum, the black and red pine bug and black red leaf hopper are extreemly similar I think they are often confused, does anyone know for sure how to distuinguish them?

    It would be really nice to see what other members have of animals with warning colours, please post em if you have em.

    fourth one is the best for me. first two didnt even show up. alot of the other ones how ever seem to be just snapshots of the insects instead of shots that seem to tell a story somehow which is what we all really like to aim for with our pictures.

    Sorry they arnt showing up Do'Udren's Eyes, if you hit F5 they should turn up. Thanks for the comment though I agree yes it is difficult to get a story out of insect shots, but perhaps if they are all visible it will be more interesting seeing what they do to stop us from eating them :).
