Thread subject: :: To many eggs loaded ?

Good evening,

In one of my first posts Paul gave this explanation to a picture of a fly loaded with eggs :

"this is what we call a 'gravid female': a female with an abdomen so full of eggs that it seems about to burst open any moment."

This Tanyptera atrata-lady really did burst open.
