Spine-tipped Dancers

Desert Firetails

Marty writes:

Spine-tipped Dancers and Desert Firetails, respectively, mating on the same grass plant at the base of the dam (clearly a favorite trysting location). Males are forward and on top (grasping the females behind the head with their terminal appendages). Females curl their abdomens underneath to receive sperm from the males’ secondary genitalia on segment two.
