Dragonflies mating mid-air

One of my favorite places in Flagstaff is Frances Short Pond. It is a hotspot for members of the Order Odonata— dragonflies and damselflies like the one below, which is, I believe, a “bluet.”damselflybluet5304

But now the show I promised—a shaky video of two orange dragonflies and their mid-air mating dance.

The still photos on my professional photo site (i.e. my SmugMug site, wilcephotos.com, and particularly the Insect page) http://www.wilcephotos.com/organize/Northern-Arizona/NAZ-FLG-BugsInsectsSpiders—are more, shall we say, “persuasive”?

Enjoy!
