First of all, the answer is "Cuz!" or "Just cuz!"
I do have a picture of two beautiful African lubber grasshoppers "doing it",
and two ladybird beetles "doing it".  Will these pix suffice?  Both are in
color.  And, I have a picture, poor that it is, of a pair of Pardosa wolf
spiders "doing it".  I have a picture of two wingless "Belgica antarctica"
chironomid flies "doing it", too (see Scientific Amerian issue on Antarctica
about 1962-62 or so).
The late George Holland, the Canadian flea specialist, saw fleas doing it -
and I think he had either a photo or a drawing of a pair of fleas mating
(the flea penis is about 9 or more times as long as the flea itself).  He
called it "Micropornography".
You will have trouble with bees cuz they do it up in the air.  The event is
short-lived, and the male literally comes apart.
