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

時間は五分ほ どでしょうか。

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.

Hello Pseudothemis....These are wonderful videos, it must've have been amazing when she perched right before your eyes! My Spring Darners are coupling and I have witnessed the female laying eggs in the water. At one point, I watched her drop eggs into the water, as she hovered in a sunbeam above the water. But, never such a close experience as you have had!

Good evening.
Thank you very much for your comment.
Laying eggs (delivery).
I think that it is time when it is divine when it is very important.
I kept distance not to surprise her.
I wait expectantly for a photograph of the dragonflies of your pond. I visit your blog every day.
When you took a photograph, please contact it by all means.
