Coppertone velvetwing, Neurothemis fluctuans

The female below is taking sperm from the male's sperm sack, while being held
on by the neck, by the male. Apparently the claspers of the male are design to be able
to hold on to females of same kind. So nature makes sure that no mistakes
can be at this very important moment ...
