Hi Bugman!
I thought you might like for your site this picture of a female Emperor Dragonfly Anax imperator laying eggs. The pond is a new one just created at my local wildlife park.

Emperor Dragonfly Oviposits

Dear Zoovolunteer,
We love your image of an ovipositing Emperor Dragonfly.  Our related Green Darner,
Anax junius, is also a magnificent Dragonfly.  We recently shot an image of an ovipositing Flame Darner, and her technique was quite different, dipping the tip of her abdomen beneath the surface while hovering.
