Blue Jr. forms a mating `wheel'.
This Mrs. Blue-eyed is the same color her mate, and is seen here inserting her eggs into the stem of Creeping Primrose. And below is another view of another female Blue-eyed Darner doing the same. This female is of the 2nd type that does not have the same coloration as the male.
All our dragonfly and damselfly species prefer to lay their eggs in, on or around the Creeping Primrose. Some of the Blue-eyeds have even chose to emerge from their larval state and metamorphose into their adult form on it.
