Threatening clusters

I once told you that I like Pyrrhocoris apterus very much.

Mostly because firebugs are harmless and do no harm to anyone.

They don't attack people and don't bite, no matter what.

Unlike some "gentle" and beautiful insects that we all know very well, as I told you recently.

Still, the sight of such a gathering of animals in one place, whatever they are, seems threatening.

It didn't seem that way to me before.

I've photographed firebug clusters before and I've never seen them as a threat.

But this year, with all its climatic features, with all the insect invasions, and with all the new insect species I've seen, the feeling is different.
