Love making ;-p Male grabs female by the back of her neck using claspers present at the end of his abdomen. One awesome thing about this attachment is it is species-specific!!! Now in this position this pair can fly together and if  the female is sexually receptive, she will raise her abdomen in order to bring her sex organs in contact with the sex organs of the male. This position is known as heart-shape wheel or just wheel shape (as visible in the picture above). Some individuals remain in this position for minutes while some spend hours till the deposition of the eggs.
