Default Bearded Dragon Stopped Eating Insects

I've had my bearded dragon, Draco, since christmas and a couple of weeks ago, he stopped eating insects altogether. First he refused to eat them when they were hopping around, so I took the legs off them and when he saw them walking on the floor/my hand he would eat them. Now when I do it, he just closes his eyes or walks off. Same with mealworms, he used to eat them when he saw them crawling on the floor, but now he either closes his eyes or walks off. He eats his water cress fine, if I was to but anything else in with the water cress he wouldn't eat it. Is it beardie mating season? I've noticed him moving his head up and down, and his beard extending outwards. I normally feed my dragon 4 locusts and some mealworms every two days, water cress everyday and change his water everyday too... Thanks

How heavy is he? Can you get some photos of his setup, along with details such as cool end temperature, warm end temperature, basking temperature, UV type and age etc?

Sure, give me a couple of minutes and I'll do. Will I have to use photobucket? I don't have it but I will get it anyway...

Ok, here are the photos, temperatures and Draco's weight. His vivarium temperatures are 91F and 30c and he weighs about 9 ounces...
