Appetite for Love
I was pretty excited when I caught sight of these two hoppers, my first chance to capture insects mating!
But as I observed the pair and began taking shot after shot from various positions and angles, I started to wonder if they were actually doing the deed? The larger grasshopper below (which I assume to be the female) is actually eating. Eating while having sex? Doesn’t seem like the right combination to me. Hmmm…
Anyway, I will be away until next Monday on holiday in Penang. Will wrap up the macro shoot with a few more photos next week. Until then, take care!
