Get ready to feast your eyes on some odd animal mating behavior.
Arthropod macrophotographer Karla Thompson captured this video of two bees doin’ the deed, and candidly, we can’t look away as hard as we try.
In the video, the male bee use his freakishly long antennae to creepily stroke the female bee to situate her~ in the mood ~.
Thompson explained how bees get down and grimy on her Patreon.
“During the session the male would use his legs to gently stroke the females side. During actual piercing, the female would propel her legs up and struggle to eject the male. This is when the male would reach out with his extra long antennae and writhe them around the females antennae rhythmically stroking upward in what seems to be a subduing gesture.
Watch this bee couple get it on if you are able stomach it.
