Firebugs are a popular insect, inhabiting areas from China to Europe and even North America. Usually found in large groups at the base of trees on the sunny side.
I shared some shots of these bugs last year, but unlike this year I didn’t have extension tubes. Additionally when taking these shots this year I used my speed light off camera to give some extra light the closed I got to the base of the tree.
Let me know what you think of these Fire Bugs in the comment box below.
