Pierre, I suggest you buy a packet of disposable razors and find a new girl/boyfriend.

The bug looks like a young lantern bug - the adult was photographed by Yaffle some time ago and is in this forum at:

http://www.lamma.com.hk/forum/viewtopic.php?t=181

Also saw this pair of insects at the weekend. Are they not talking to each other, or engaged in some kind of weird congress

This is a pretty amazing photo, Zep, visually simple & clean, great colours & contrasts, fine composition, plus a scientifically fascinating subject matter...

It's well worthy of the Lamma.com.hk home page as "Picture of the Day" in the Lamma-zine Blog. Check it out, it just went online!

Is it also worthy of a Yellow Card for its almost-pornographic content? Nah!

The photograph by Yaffle is of a "Litchi Lantern Bug" (Pyrops candelaria), the example above is just a little smaller than the LLBug, very flat & has a different overall structure except they have a long snout in common.
Would think it to be a different species.

Not sure - Paul the Lantern Bug Man has left Pak Kok - I'll see if I can track him down.

We might have to rename this topic into "Copulating Bugs".
Might make a good Lamma-zine photo gallery title...

Here's one of my low-res shots from last year, taken up at Hunter's:

I thought the first bug was strange - but this one takes the cake - either that or we've already been invaded

Am I the only one disgusted by these photos of bugs engaged in what appear to be un-natural orgiastic acts?

I have tried to stamp this sort of thing out in my church (C of E), and feel we all ought to do our part in restoring some decorum to the processes of biological relationships. No more, please.

My apologies - (although I have excluded a couple of bug bondage photos) - will try to keep it down to a bit of slap & tickle in future.

Finally saw my first Lychee Lanternbug, thanks to Guy's tip.

The tree trunk, close to the 2nd Cable Route underpass after the Kindergarten, was covered with more than a dozen of these amazing creatures, my favourite Lamma bug.

L-B - what was that you were saying about not bending the colour curve too much?

L-B - Just an affectionate, if not witty little nick-name, but can't really explain outside FC, might get carded - sorry - but yes - what about that colour curve?

Yes, the Lanternbug has lovely colour curves, wouldn't you agree?
All these colourful curves, dots and stripes, really pretty!
