01.22.2015 Erotica….PG-13

The other day, Steve S. wondered if Erotica would be next up from me.  I don’t have too much that would qualify, but there is this…..Mating-Fireflies-051013-800FBMaking sure the night will have firefly lights (Photuris sp.)


UI-Moth-pair-matingSpotted Thyris moths ( Thyris maculata)


UI-Mating-fliesStylogaster flies (Stylogaster neglecta)


And a couple of very acrobatic Soldier Beetles (Podabrus rugosulus)

Mating-Soldier-Beetles-800FBDon’t try this at home, kids.

    Perhaps the original spelling of the now-common term “insects” had only one letter instead of the final three, and it somehow was lost in the hustle to familiarize people with why they are so prolific and ubiquitous. After all, in the end, love conquers all.
