I'm here for you darling

DescriptionThis female Emperor dragonfly was motorboating around pushing a fir cone around.  She moved a few times then settled down to lay eggs in this plant.  After a little while a male came over and tenderly hugged her, a touching scene, till you realise he is reaching under to fertilise the eggs.  However, at first glance, romantic surely?
