Scorpionfly mating ritual
Hi Daniel,
after sending of the last email I got to thinking whether the image may still be in a sent mail folder, guess what, I found it.
So attached is the full frame just resized down 50% so you can crop as desired.

Hangingflies: Mating Ritual

Hi again Trevor,
Thank you so much for contributing this wonderful image to our site.  The male Scorpionfly in the family Bittacidae, the Hangingflies, often present the females with a nuptial gift of a captured insect to entice her into mating.  The male Hangingfly in your photograph has such a gift.  Again, thanks so much for responding to our earlier request and for contributing so many wonderful images of Australian Hangingflies to our site.
