Date Night

I was shooting this pretty little white-faced meadowhawk dragonfly. I had to do a little research to find out just what he was doing.

Male dragonflies have two genitalia sites: the primary one at the last segment of their abdomen, and the secondary is at the 2nd segment. Before copulation, the male must transfer semen from the 9th segment to the 2nd segment. More than any of us need to know...
Goodness - facts are amazing! Then sex would not be a spur of the moment something! Great photographs!
