Fly from mid-April until September. The eggs hatch a few weeks after the deposition, the nymphs live in the country and, having wintered in the spring take over the development and adult flicker in April-May. These, after a short period of maturation mate. After mating, the duo takes its flight towards the emerging plants. The female starts oviposition, curving the abdomen to the chest and then insert the ovipositor with regularity in plant tissues. The male during this operation stands vertically on top of it, staying with circles, with closed wings and legs folded against his chest. At rest the wings are juxtaposed along the abdomen.

Vola dalla met di aprile fino a settembre. Le uova schiudono qualche settimane dopo la deposizione; le ninfe vivono nel fondo e, dopo aver svernato, in primavera riprendono lo sviluppo e gli adulti sfarfallano in aprile-maggio. Questi, dopo un breve periodo di maturazione si accoppiano. Dopo laccoppiamento il tandem prende il volo verso le piante affioranti. La femmina inizia lovideposizione, curvando laddome verso il torace e poi inserisce con regolarit lovopositore nei tessuti vegetali. Il maschio nel corso di questa operazione si regge verticalmente sopra di essa, trattenendosi con i cerci, ad ali chiuse e zampe ripiegate contro il torace. A riposo stanno con le ali accostate lungo laddome.

Lovely image of this mating pair of damselflies, the 'heart' is really captured well. Beautiful background makes this very good image. tfs.

The U2's "All I want is you" can be quite appropriate title for this colorful presentation friend sERGIO! Bravo, stunning love capture taken from fine point of view with fine detail and amazing composition indeed. One of the best images of that specie around in my opinion! Bravo indeed!
