This is some shots of our biggest and most impressive damselfly, The Calopteryx virgo (The Blue winged damselfly). They live in streaming water and the males each occupy a small area as their kingdom. If another males enters the kingdom he will be chased away, not by fighting, but by showing the intruder his beautiful wings. During the chase they enter the other ones kingdom and the chase is in reverse. This can go on for a long time. :smile: A couple of the males. When a female enters the territory he gets all excited. He sits in front of her showing his wings and what a big boy he is. (Kind of like when we flex our muscles at the beach when a pretty girl walks by :biggrin She off course like most women plays hard to get and moves to some other vegetation and the play starts all over. This is the female. At last she is so impressed with him and they decide to go steady. After the mating the male follows her when she delivers the egg on some dead vegetation in the water protecting her from other males. And they lived happily till the day they died knowing the genes were passed on. End of tale. Thanks for watching.
