Default Mating damselflies

A pair of mating damselflies I shot yesterday. The male is above, he actually has a special pocket on his second abdominal segment that stores sperm cells. He swings the end of his abdomen up and deposits his sperm into that pocket, and the female must swing her abdomen up to receive it.
