Well, it's been more than 24 hours since we first discovered the two locusts on our palm, locked in their lovers' embrace and they're still at it.
They've either got considerable stamina, or are locked together eternally, or are simply doing what their kind do. I suspect the latter.
They don't just sit there and get on with it, either, but have had a good wander around the palm, with Mrs Locust (I assume some marital relationship here) munching away at a leaf whenever she feels a bit peckish.
In the meantime, our other monster in the garden, the praying mantis, presumably being of a more religious than carnal nature, just keeps on praying.
You can see more photos of the garden monsters in this jAlbum.
