    Great documentation of his metamorphosis. Compelling shots and lighting. One of the best I've seen so far in your insect collection videos. Plus the story of the extended eyeballs is pretty interesting. It has evolved to basically ensure his specie. Great work 😎

    Why not both? I mean a female will be attracted to a male that's more stronger and have potential for stronger offsprings ( since in this case, being strong means longer eyes for longer range and thus more prospect of finding food and survival).
