Hydrometra's, mating (Spain sept. 2006)
Hydrometra stagnorum
Water-measurers, mating

When Water-measurers are mating it's often that only when they part you notice that you were looking at two animals. The Water-measurers on this picture were mating in a group of maybe six pair on the water of a little basin in the botanic garden "Marimurtra" near Blanes (North of Barcelona). The after party is shown on the picture beneath.
