this time i photographed 2 butterflies stuck together lying on the ground, one flew into the air towing the other one which made no attempt to fly.

Were they mating? Looks rather like it.

i first assumed mating, but when one flew away, the other(left one in this photo) was completely passive it just was towed into the air by the active butterfly. It is hard to know. has anyone else seen this behaviour?
