## Figure 2.
Swarm size dynamics (line graphs) over time in relation to mating dynamics (vertical
bars). The nine swarms were observed over one evening (18 August 2008) and divided arbitrarily
into three panels to avoid clutter. Each color in each panel represents a distinct
swarm measured from the first sighting of swarming in that evening until the last
male disappeared. To accommodate variation between swarms in absolute size, the number
of males in each swarm and time point was expressed as the fraction of the peak swarm
size. Likewise the number of couples per interval of 3 minutes is presented as the
fraction from the corresponding maximal value of that swarm. Note that the scale of
the couples was compressed and values were jittered horizontally by up to ± 0.3 minute
to avoid clutter.
