but who buys drinks?

Tantric secrets of the invertebrate world...

lovebug - Plecia nearctica Hardy
Copulatory behavior begins with the male darting and grasping a female that is flying through the swarm. The pair falls to the ground where they couple. Initially the male is positioned on the back of the female and both sexes face the same direction. After coupling, the male turns 180° and faces the opposite direction. Successful genitalic engagement takes from 1.5 to 10 min.
From now on, I'll reference "genitalic engagement" in all such discussions with my wife...
