    Default Doubled up

    ID: Mating pair of millipedes

    While exploring the monsoon drenched forest trail, witnessed this couple traversing up on a mossy, fungus infested bark of the tree. Due to the heavy rains, and falling of water droplets, the pair seemed to struggle a bit with climbing up the tree, aiding me in getting a frame of them

    Nice patterns created by them. The water droplets make them further shiny and sparkling. Good you observe and could photograph this behavior. Thanks for sharing.

    Looks like one big tall millipede. Good that you got it parallel so that the entire body is in focus. Is that some stick in the background? Thanks for sharing.
