These two are just in the process of pairing. The male has landed on the female and is bringing his abdomen round ready to grab her behind the head with the pincers on the end of his abdomen.
I was lucky enough to witness (and photograph) the whole pairing sequence which was fascinating so I will try to post the sequence when I get them sorted out.
A big thank you to Nigel (Nigeve1) for his UA on yesterday's image which, as always, was very much appreciated.
Thanks for looking
