I chanced upon these dragonflies mating amongst the water lilies.
From all indications, dragonflies are not monogamous. Such an acrobatic effort for a transient relationship.
Reminds me of the song “Sleeps with Butterflies” by Tori Amos. Here’s a stanza.
I don’t hold on
To the tail of your kite
I’m not like the girls that you’ve known
But I believe I’m worth coming home to
Kiss away night
This girl only sleeps with butterflies
So go on and fly then boy
I guess it also applies to dragonflies.
