Damselflies having some fun!


I took this picture in mid-July. I had my 150 mm macro lens with me and surprised this pair of damselflies mating in what is know as a heart or wheel shape. The male clasps the female at the back of the head and the female curls her abdomen down to pick up the sperm from the male abdomen.
