Damselflies mating (Three Photographs)

damselflies-matingTo view more of my photography please click on www.rakmilphotography.com

In the first photo the damselflies are actually mating. In the second the male remains attached to protect the eggs he fertilized. In the third one the eggs are being placed in the water, where they live through the winter and emerge the following summer from their nymph state into full-grown damselflies before the cycle begins again. The three photos are of bluet damselflies, however, I am not expert enough to say which bluets they are.
