Spotted a pair of Miletus biggsii biggsii (Bigg's Brownie) at USR today. The male was trying to mate with the female but somehow the female was not interested and after a while the female decided to stop the "sexual harassment" of the male and flew off. While I was adjusting some tree branches to have a clear-view shot, the male also flew off.

I knew that they may come back to the same perch as this species like to associate with the ants due to their symbiotic relationship. I waited for a few minutes, this time the same male flew back to the same perch as before. With a better view now, I quickly snapped a few shots.

#1 is a great shot!

You seem to have such luck in capturnig such moment. I remember you shot the DF too last time.

Were these taken yesterday? I just realise today's date is 13 May after seeing Sunny post about the Plane. I hope you weren't influenced by me on the date? kekeke

Just behind those hedges where the Plane was usually found.
I followed the date on your thread, yes should be 12 May - so the date on the tread title needs to be amended. Thanks
