I like your bug very much! What a curious shape and colour! Thanks for sharing.

Thank you Nawitka. This bug is pretty common in Slovakia and it's nicked "elektricka" which literary means "tram". This is because during copulation two bugs are connected by their rear parts and walk around the place as if nothing was going on really. Pretty funny sight though ;)
