虎斑蜻蛉 (Epitheca marginata Selys)  産卵 (Spawning)

山池に到着した時、眼前の木に虎斑蜻蛉の雌が止まり、産卵を始めました。時間は五分ほ どでしょうか。その後、飛び立ち、水面に一度尾を沈めました。

When I arrived at the mountain pond, a female of Torafu tonbo (Epitheca marginata Selys) perched on a tree before eyes and began laying eggs. It was approximately 5 minutes in that time. She flew away and sank a tail once afterwards on the surface of the water.
