Males do court other males, but usually only briefly. The male being
courted usually flicks his wings in a male-specific manner, and the courting
male quickly realizes that he is an inappropriate target. There is a mutant
stock called fruitless, the males of which both court other (normal) males
and are courted by normal males. According to some reports, normal males
can also be induced to court each other by playing artificial songs.
