I was casually walking in the garden and found this cotton bugs mating. It was 0845 in the mrng (ofcourse they dont wear a watch) and was wondering whether they have any time table (!!!). Thanks for watching.

Hello Ganesh,
A very fine macro of a pair of mating Cotton Bugs. The POV and sharpness show this pair off with excellent clarity on the leaf where they are sitting.
Best time for mating? When it's sunny and warm, or warm and humid but not in the dark!
Thanks and all the best,

Hello Ganesh,

Best regards

Your title and notes are so funny! And this picture of the two Cotton Bugs is excellent. Wonderful colors and razor sharp details. The leaf is a perfect setting for the couple.
