Beautiful iris flower with ugly insects-macro photo

I took this photo in the Botanical Garden.
This is some kind of iris flower, beautiful but full of these ugly insects.

The bugs were not feeding on the iris flower but fighting each other and constantly moving.
I managed somehow to take an acceptable picture of them, after several tries.

The bugs made the image more interesting and dramatic. Nicely done. Thanks for dropping by my page.

Maia, this is a great shot! What are the bugs fighting over if not food...some girl?! :)
I've missed your last 2 Macro Saturdays, but I won't make that a habit!!

I don't think I would be happy to have those bugs on my iris. I don't even know what they are and if they are foe or friend.

Maia I was just back from holiday and didn't get to enter your own meme this weekend. If you are interested in The Lion The Witch and the Wardrobe you might be interested in my latest post. I did have some macro shots but didn't think they were close enough shots to be considered for your meme.

Can you tell me what national day you had yesterday I was not sure what it was to commmerate - all I know is about the funerals in Poland.

I don't think bugs are ugly.
Nice shot!

Those bugs are cute!! How can you say they're ugly? OK, they're not so pretty as the iris, but to me, more interesting! ;)

Love the photo!

That a very attractive flower. Have never really seen an iris flower. Nice shot. Thanks for sharing.

Wow! There's a lot of bugs on that bloom! Makes for a good photo, but I think the flower probably isn't too happy over it, lol.
