'A pair of damselflies get together at our Wilderness wetlands in Delhi. During mating, the male uses claspers at the tip of his abdomen to grasp the female behind her head tightly enough to resist the attempts by other males to dislodge him – they are now said to be \'in tandem\'. ... Afterwards the pair separate, but the male guards the female from rivals while she lays her eggs. Dragonfly sex is a very conspicuous event, easily recognized by the heart-shaped \"wheel\" formation of mating pairs. Dragonfly and damselfly sex is a very conspicuous event, easily recognized by the heart-shaped \"wheel\" formation of mating pairs. But what else is involved in the mating behavior of these insects? Dragonflies and damselflies are closely related insects, which both belong to the insect order Odonata. The two insects display a number of subtle differences, most noticeably their size and rest orientation. That is, damselflies are small, slender and hold their wings over their backs while perching; dragonflies are larger than damselflies and keep their wings outstretched while at rest. The insects share similarities in some of their reproductive behaviors, but the mating systems of damselflies are more varied Source - livescience.com This footage is part of the broadcast stock footage archive of Wilderness Films India Ltd., the largest HD and 4K collection from South Asia.
