When I looked at the flowers, I found red and black striped beetles.
Judging from the shape of them, I thought that they were a kind of shield bugs.
I don't like shield bugs because of its nasty smell, however, these didn't stink. I searched online and found out that these are Graphosoma rubrolineatum. Graphosoma likes Apiaceae plants, just like Lady's lace.

|Very impressive black and red stripes.|
|They are mating on the flower or at the neck of flowerhead.|
Red and black stripes reminds me of Darth Maul of Star Wars Films. But this association may be pitiful for the bugs.
Rather, the bugs look like a cute baby below :-)
