Backyard Beetle Macro

A few more Beetle macro shots from July. Do not know the species of the first beetle which I also posted earlier. Probably part of the Genus Cantharis. The second appears to be some variety of Longhorned Beetle – probably Xestoleptura crassipes. Both are crawling on flowers from Astrantia major.
