"Pssst! Wanna come back to my place and do interesting stuff?"

"Eerrr...what sort of interesting stuff?"
EJWilkins: I think they may already have found the right place!
Now I see the blue such lovely detail well captured Ellie.
EJWilkins: Yes, the underside is quite similar isn't it.
Another beautiful shot Ellie. I think Ray could be rightgrin
EJWilkins: He was almost right, but I don't think there was any 'Let's go somewhere else"!
I like this very much, Ellie. Such an unusual shot - well spotted. (no pun intended) (:o)
EJWilkins: It's one of those, "I'll never get a picture like that" sort of shots, well, for me it is!

This looks like courtship to me Ellie!
EJWilkins: Absolutely right Chris, the blue chaps were getting quite frantic with several chasing each female

Meeting a stranger by chance. Later referred to as: "The first time we met".
EJWilkins: Yep! You're right!
How fortunate to get them both in the same shot Ellie.
EJWilkins: Pure, pure chance. A serendipity moment.
