Who's in charge?

These are box elder bugs, mating. The male is the smaller of the two. Lucky him, he gets to have sex, but the female gets to decide where the couple will go, while they are mating!

Under the arboretum's box elder and flame trees, many of these female bugs are taking charge, and dragging their hubbys around by the tail!
