More Mating Damselflies

The current heatwave seems to be spurring the damselflies up at Tessier Gardens into a mating frenzy.

There were dozens of Common Blues and Big Reds darting and dancing around the little lily pond.

We saw 2 males (Big Reds) strung together on a female. One male clamped onto the head of the other male who was clamped onto the head of the female. Extraordinary (if a little bizarre)

A micro world of massively intense fascination.
