An Emperor Oviposits

Good footage of an emperor ovipositing!

For your question, I can only guess the answer: She is testing for suitable substrate for her next round of oviposition.

Oh yes, I bought a small digicam which has a high speed video mode. I have been shooting insect behaviour with it and the results are acceptable. Here is one example : territorial fight between two male Libellago lineata. (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-966YW7Gawk). Slow motion (at 1/4 normal speed) begins at about 3 second in the video clip.

I used Casio EX-FH100. As a consumer digicam, this camera has many limitations, which one needs to work around to get useful results.
