Green Darner Pair
Another photo for the “Love Bugs” page. It took me almost an hour to capture these two green darners coupled together and laying eggs on camera. They flit around quite a bit.

Hi Nadjia
Not all Dragonflies remain coupled while laying eggs. We are happy to have your image that nicely illustrates this mating technique. In this way, the male is ensured that the female doesn’t successfully mate with another male and the first male’s genes get passed on to the next generation.
