One of a pair perhaps, hanging while mating?

Thanks for guessing, folks.
Do not worry, nothing bad has happened to butterfly. 8)
It is easy to catch these butterflies while they feed half-submerged in Tecoma flowers.
On touch, wings are silky and slippery. At the ends of the legs they have hooks with which can hold really firmly to the flower or some other base.
When I let them free, they flew happily and undamaged. :D
All pics are full frame except first (portrait oriented, slightly cropped to hide my thumb).
See the story in pictures. A picture is worth a thousand words. :wink:
