Blue-tailed Damselfly (Ischnura Elegans)

I had to hold my breath to take these pictures of a pair of copulating Damselflies, using my camera hand-held with a shoulder-pod. The male is top grasping the female behind her head, and its the female, which has bent her abdomen to insert her genitalia into the males genitalia where he has already stored sperm. Photographed at Lakeside Country Park, Eastleigh Hampshire.
