Small Red-eyed Damselflies | German name: Kleines Granatauge
Odonata – Zygoptera – Coenagrionidae – Erythromma –
Erythromma viridulum | (Charpentier, 1840)
Coming out of the typical odonata mating wheel the green female is preparing to oviposit into the pond while the blue male with the red eyes – which give this species its name – holds on to her until she is finished laying her eggs. He keeps holding her to avoid other males mating with her, because the last one who does is the one who fertilizes her eggs – so he makes sure it’s his offspring!
Nature at work…
Here’s the camera/lens combination used for this shot.
