"A brief encounter"

By Scuttleatflordon
Good evening,
Just happened to be driving along the lane when these two Orange Tips caught my eye. Luckly i had my camera with me and i was fortunate to get this shot. The female is on the left and has her abdomen raised spreading feremons that as you can see have attracted a male. Thanks for looking and thankyou for the comments on my past uploads.
