Mating Dragon Flies

About a dozen or so were flying about in the sunlight
catching the attention of a few Wood Ducks that gobbled them
up. I got this before they were gone.

From viewing this image of the dragon flies mating and reading some information online this would appear to the start of the process which ends up with the dragon flies in a heart shaped "mating wheel", as I understand it. And then to do this while you have ducks waiting to eat them. Well seen and well captured Steve.

That is some cool shot.

Cool indeed! Not very sharp, but seeing and capturing it is really cool.;-)
