Quality time with the Missus!

Robberflies executing KS [that's Karma Sutra] position #329 with extra degrees of difficulty for full twist and four swinging legs. It's not a pretty sight, but seems to work for this couple.

Ladies and gentlemen...please don't try this at home...our performers are highly genetically specialised to enable this behaviour, and St John's Ambulance volunteers were in attendance!

lol, you mean you don't also hang upside down from poles? Great photo!
Ray: [grin] We have giant bamboo in Thailand, but the missus complains about the mosquitoes.
Thank you for your comment.

I got a whole minute of laugh, first from looking at the image, then from reading your improvisation on the theme. After a whole day of a hard labor of refinishing the hardwood floor, that was a moment I was waiting to get loosen.
Thank you, Ray.
Ray: You are very welcome, VZ.
Thank you for your comment.

You mean to tell me you have not tried this position Ray??
I'm suprised.LOLgrin
Nice shot BTW.
Ray: The missus complains about her hands slipping on the giant bamboo. [grin]
Thansk, Tracy.
lol will you be showing us all the positions? Fantastic!
Ray: [grin] I am slowly building up a collection of bug lurv images, and have used a few of them on SC already.
Stunning macro !!! What lens did u use ?
Ray: Hi Ferdi.
eerrr...canon 70-200mm f4 L
lol! Brilliant, Ray! (:o)
Ray: [grin]
Looks like there is a bit of head banging going on with the missus.
Ray: oh, no, Mary.
I watched them for a while. It seems to be a very tantric exercise...get your mind right, assume the position, don't move a muscle for 10 minutes or so...kind of a routine.

Umm Ray, I think you are mistaken. This looks a little more like KS #342. Please note the position of her left wing which is more like 342 than 329. Don't ya think? You have those ellusive robberflies well trained with your errrr canon 7-200 f4 L smile lol You are silly and silly is good!
Ray: Very observant, Kathryn, and I bow to your superior analysis. [grin]

She already has one stiff leg, mmm - must be because he is tickling her with that funny facial hair growing from between his eyes.

Great shot. Camera = unknown? You used the neighbour's and don't know the make?
Ray: That's one heck of a moustache, heh!
Canon 40D, "P" mode...70-200mm F4 L lens at 200mm, autofocus, no flash...don't remember the rest.
Thanks for your comment, Louis.

Ray: I am so glad you like this image, Photosam.
I'll try to post a better macro for you...please keep on visiting.

Funny and well executed as usual. I am impressed that you copied out the disclaimers from the KS for our reading pleasures.
Ray: Thanks, Martin.
Better to be cautious and well informed on the perils of extreme....errr...whatever!
Didn't know this Nr 329, I'll tell my wife smile
Ray: Don't "tell" her, Zebigleb...better to "show" her.

Great capture with a wonderful title. I just love insect porn.
Ray: Sounds like your are a voyeur, Beth...just like me! [grin]
