dragonflies

Sarah taught me something really great about dragonflies. In their mating ritual, the male brings the female a ‘nuptual gift’, which is generally a bug or something else good to eat. The female picks the male with the best gift. Well it turns out that some males cheat: some males PRETEND TO BE FEMALES, to get other males to mate with them they pretend to copulate with another male and steal their gift and then find a (hopefully) female to give it to. Of course now i’m imagining a whole circle-of-fuck where the male steals the gift, but then is fooled by ANOTHER male, and so on and so forth a giant dragonfly secret santa circle jerk.
