The Embrace and the Life Cycle.

Photo and caption by Jeffrey Mickler

While shooting Butterflies on flowers I caught this image. While fertilizing the flowers they were also insuring the continuation of their own kind. The female covered with pollen and the male holding her in place. A rare site indeed. The mating usually takes place in the nest that the male jealously guards and protects.

Location: Fellows Garden Mill Creek Park Youngstown Ohio
