[Please forgive my poor English!]


I discovered them few days ago, between two petals of a rose (in my little suburban garden, near Lyon, S-E of France). Taking some photographs, I was intrigued by the behavior of the male which was bustling on the head of the female; I did not understand at first sight what was happening, as if 'he' was tickling the neck to 'her', and then I saw the bubble! Here is my small report of the scene, which lasted fourteen minutes:
France : 17 5 2009 : Banlieue de Lyon : 69
altitude : 197 m - taille : 7 mm
