They were flying a few seconds before I took this photo, amazing that they can fly whilst coupled but then Dragonflies are pretty amazing creatures all round I think. The eggs will be laid shortly after this coupling and then the larvae will spend a couple of years in their aquatic state before emerging for that short air-bourne stage. Canon EOS-1D Mark III
