Austin, Ladybird Johnson Wildflower Center, Travis County, Texas, USA
August 18, 2011
Size: female about 8 mm
After the spider attack, the queen had only a minute or so to rest before another male flew up and started mating. This one had a different technique: instead of just hanging on the abdomen, he flew and maintained an upright position.
