A leafhopper? No a very tiny moth belonging to the group - Microlepidoptera

These tiny couple were in the love bond when i found them... It continued for around 3 mins before they seperated...

The male (i guess males are larger) took a last look at the female before vanishing out of sight...
The female on the other hand stood there posing like a paid model.... :-)

I tried very very hard to focus perfectly (manual focusing is punishing).... they are so very tiny that I ended up getting my eyes blurry trying hard to get that satisfying picture....

This i guess is not a very bad picture... :-(

C & C most welcome :-)

Hi Vipin,

Not the perfect but well captured. I think this could be a pair of moths. Even i've captured the same mating pair but unable to find out the ID. TFS.
