Love shaped dragonfly


I never knew when dragonfly mate, they form a love shape till I watched a television show on the insects' life last weekend...The show was awesome because it really showed all the lives of different insects and they were indeed interesting...Though I dislike insects like other girls do, I still want to update my blog with this post... =P

Look at the beautifully love shape formed =)

The blue male dragonfly is pressing its tail onto the female's neck to prevent other dragonflies from snatching its other half....

The female dragonfly then lay eggs on the leaves inside the water and it must be careful not to be eaten by frogs-the predators...


The female dragonfly is preparing to lay eggs

The eggs of dragonfly...New lives are given~~~

The first 3 are damselfly. Damselfly and dragonfly are different. :)
