...or should that be Empress? It must be the time for Emperors to mate and lay their eggs for less than half an hour after I took this shot a friend phoned me on another matter and casually mentioned that he'd just taken a picture of a pair of Dragonflies mating. When he later showed me the shot it was a pair of Emperors. Canon EOS-1D Mark III
