    Brilliant capture. Experts would have us believe that Insects express emotion and communicate mimetically – that is, by bodily gestures (mimetic language), however, these two little chaps are obviously having a whisper in each others ear. Watch out they’re evolving.

  • Thanks for your comment and insight Pete.
