Love there colours never seen any like this in our area
oh yeh dragonflys mating they are one of the oldes insects living one the planet there are 15 to 25 different ones living here in oregon united states. there is a whole matting ritual with these guys the males find a high point on a a plant or weed then face the sun. as u can see their wings reflect the sun and they dance in flight and because they are so heavy they use the lilly pad to skim across the water while they are together. others us mate in the trees and some mate lower on the lily pads its really beautiful sitting at my friends pond ,
this was a crazy story shooting these insects when they did couple the duck realized this and came looking for a dragonfly snack there was me trying to shoot these bugs and chasing ducks away and i almost fell in a few times lol it was great fun.
