The very moment of conception.

.

On the pond here at Falcon Cottage we have had small delicate visitors in the latter part of summer. When the sunlight went they disappeared, vanished, I know not where. When the sun broke the clouds they basked on the lily pads, usually in isolation; their red eyes making them look like fancy blue unstruck matches.

Small Red Eyed Damselflies, the younger brother of Red Eyed Damselflies were unknown in the UK until 1999. Since then they have become established and are continuing to spread north.

I photographed this couple just at the point of conception forming their copulative heart.
