Tessier Garden Damselflies

Haze filmed Common Blue Damselflies in Tessier Garden this week.

Males mating and merging with the females.

So exquisitely intricate, fragile, delicate.
(although the dominant grip the males lock the females heads into looks fearsomely archaic)

The males then dance and dip the females into the pond to get them to release (oviposit) their eggs.

This has all been going on for millions and millions of years.
