Artist's Description

The male Common Green Darner (Anax junius) protects his mate during egg-laying. This “protection” appears to be more for fending off competing males than, say, predators. Here, a pair of these large insects have landed carefully on the water, using a few narrow stems for support lest they sink into the drink. The female, at the rear, is busy depositing eggs below surface while the male keeps vigil for any interlopers.
