  22. Muy buenas capturas en especial porque el macho suele ser más conocido por sus rituales de apareamiento y la hembra frecuentemente pasa desapercibida. Un abrazo,

    Very good catches especially because the male is usually known for their mating rituals and the female often goes unnoticed. A hug,
