Papilio machaon – – The In copula: This position is called “in wheel” when it comes to dragonflies but for anything alse, included it is simple copulation or mating! Anyway aren’t they magnificent?!

Miroir de Machaons – On appelle la copulation de la libellule un “cœur copulatoire”….. expression très raffinée, mais pour les autres insectes – papillons compris, ce n’est qu’une simple copulation! Mais que c’est beau quand même!
