Great work!
Now I can finally compare a good ventral shot of a female with my males images. She has lots of red coloring.

You are welcome Bob!
The main problem with this image is that my lens (Canon MPE 65mm 1-5X) did not allow me to shoot the bug in its entirety. The length of this photo was not cropped. I just ordered a new lens (Canon 100mm f2.8) that will solve this issue.
I am trying to catch bugs in your state, but tonight is windy, the moon is bright and the bugs are not showing up. Luckily, I caught another kissing bug.
