Two Burnet Moths doing a post mating ritual.. Don't know what the stroking of the antenna was all about, but as they're sensory appendages, Let you draw your own conclusion..Guess the male could of fallen asleep or buzzed off..Wink..Always fascinating observing nature under the macro...Tongue..

Thanks to the wonderful company of "Tomcat" Adrian..ducking and diving the "Rain & Wind "..and the loan of the plastic shoe cover.. kept the hair dry ha ha ..Smile

Thank you for all previous c/c and views etc...

It made a very good macro. I like the pose, the colours and the faded background.
Good work!
