Dragonfly Days -- Saddlebags...ahem...courtship

The female Black Saddlebags Dragonfly will soon be laying eggs in a nearby pond. This couple was photographed in their room with a view at the Indiana Dunes.

Dragonflies can take up to two years to develop from aquatic nymphs to flying adults. The little ones will spend time in the pond eating tadpoles, mosquitoes and other tasty aquatic insects.
