Small Redeyes (Erythromma viridulum), egg-laying, Nidda, Frankfurt/M, Germany

Year: 2014
From collection: Dragonflies
Taken by: Peter Prokosch
This damselfly breeds in ponds, lakes and ditches and, in continental Europe, sluggish rivers. It seems to be well able to tolerate brackish water. It seems to be associated with floating vegetation. Eggs are laid while in tandem, into the stems and leaves of floating plants.
