Yes I'm intrigued by this big abdomen in female beetle. Thanks, Cindy. :)

:) Sckel, I don't know exactly what you're referring to but the female has a very large abdomen compared to the male. This makes her look a little different. Also, she is holding one of her antennae awkwardly underneath her.

Thank you so much CindyBinghamKeiser! Now, can you answer Sckel's question? ;-)

I changed my ID suggestion to just the genus level. It's difficult to see the spot pattern to determine the sp but you may have more luck :)

@ Sckel: I don't know what they are, so it is hard to find out any information.
It looks like some kind of beetles in yellow and black colors. Pretty ones.
