Grasshoppers in mating...

:c9:


This was taken in November - it was strange(to me) seeing the grasshopper eating whilst mating!

(Captured at Kamunting Gardens, Taiping, not Singapore...)

This being the Chinese New Year, an abundance of happiness and prosperity to all here!

Is this the ultimate of pleasure for the female in the insect world? You should see the huge female praying manthis eating its mate while mating. :cry: :giggle:

Perhaps! Better to be the female than the male in the insect world!

I have never seen that, thankfully!

Woke up one morning to see one in my seventh-storey :o bedroom.
This being about grasshoppers, here's a link instead -

Was that a female?

Superb shots of the grasshoppers here - love them!
