About a week ago, we watched a male Flame Darner patrolling our dilapidated fountain, but by the time we got the camera, he was gone.  Today we watched a female Flame Darner flying and dipping her abdomen into the water, and we were successful in getting a few poor quality images of her laying eggs in the same fountain.  There are never any Mosquito Larvae in the fountain, so we have concluded that there must be some predator eating them.  Dragonfly larvae are just the type of predator that would help control the Mosquito larvae.
