Really cool shots! The colours on that beetle are great 😃

How many stacks go into each shot?
 
Astounding photography. Talk about a provocative beetle.
 
As long as none of those are a pizza topping on the patio!

All single shots. Occasionally I will try a stack but not on these.
Summer leafcutter bee, i believe with those wicked looking green eyes🤘...

Leap frog or piggy back rides?
Thanks! Maybe Megachile sp?

Milkweed Bug, Lygaeus kalmii. Looks somewhat similar to the milkweed beetle but it's in a different insect order.
