I was focusing on a totally different dragonfly on a totally different end of a stick... when these two lovebirds landed even closer to me as I hovered as close as I could lying on the edge of the pond.

I was so excited, I was shaking... the wind was blowing... the stick was moving... the camera wouldn't autofocus... and I was handholding it...but, here it is! I hope you like it. It made lying in the hot sun in the dirt worth it for me. :D

Oh... I'm so thankful that God didn't make us humans mate in the head. :D
