A pair of Common Darters (Sympetrum striolatum), ovipositing in tandem. This species of dragonfly is active even in winter, this was captured in December. It's an uncropped photo and I especially love the ripples of the water (caused by the female darter dipping the tip of its abdomen in the water to lay its eggs).

It's orchid season again in Crete, Greece and I was able to find 14 different species on a fieldtrip on Sunday! Looks like this Anacamptis collina was trying to scare me off, though :)
