B. fumigata mating

I turned on the heater in my bug room and I guess it got these guys in the mood. It was fun to watch the male's mating dance. He waved his butt around then stuck his wings straight up in the air and backed towards the female. She climbed on his back and hooked up then turned around. They fell off their log a few times but remained attached. They've been like this for a few hours :)

Nice shot! :D

Its a good idea to capture all aspects of roach husbandry by photo so all can understand how different species do what they do. Great photo.
