A mating pair of giraffe weevil / long necked beetle, Paracycnotrachelus sp.
Ever since i spotted my first giraffe weevil back in March 8, 2008, I have been on the look out for for a mating pair.
Finally, I got lucky on Oct 9, 2010.
We found not just one but two mating pairs on that day!
If you search "giraffe weevil" on google.com, you can actually find my first giraffe weevil image right on top of the result page! I think it's a sign that I have shot too many of these super cute giraffe weevils.
Oh, you can view the mating animation here:
