Coeliccia octogesima - In Tandem

Male Coeliccia octogesima is more commonly spotted than female. To bump into a tandem pair of C. octogesima is something to be celebrated. I spotted a tandem pair of C. octogesima, and I waited for 20 minits to see if they would form a wheel pair before my eyes. However, they vanished before me, and I have to content myself with just tandem pair photos. The female C. octogesima has different thoracic marking than the male.
