ヤブヤンマ ( Polycanthagyna melanictera )

友人の案内でヤブヤンマの池に参りました。 ヤブヤンマ、初見です。 飛翔する雄の美しさに見惚れました。 写真とビデオに収めることが出来たのは雌の産卵でした。 友には、ただただ感謝です。

I went to the pond of Yabu yanma (Polycanthagyna melanictera) by the guidance of the friend. I watched Yabu yanma for the first time. I admired the beauty of the male dragonfly which flew. I was able to photograph the laying eggs of the female dragonfly.

Great sequence!
I guess this spot will be filled with water in due course?

Good evening.
Thank you very much for your comment.
A Japanese name of this dragonfly is ヤブヤンマ (Yabu yanma).
When I translate it literally for English, it is a thicket dragonfly.
They like a small pond in forest
