four-spotted tree cricket
Mating pair: female, with spermatophore
attached, is feeding at the metanotal glands of the male. Jerseydale Campground,
Mariposa County, California. Photograph by Jeff Cole, Natural History Museum of Los

Note: During postcopulatory feeding, the male's wings are typically held perpendicular
to the body axis (see previous image); however, the best photograph of this mating pair caught the male
in a less usual pose.
