A Southern Hawker. Every year I get these gorgeous dragonflies visiting the garden pond - but the odd thing is some of the females seem to prefer laying their eggs in the moss on the pond edge (the dragonfly is facing the water, it's about a foot in front of her)............Why? I know it's been a wet summer, but the edges are well drained and (apart from the odd piece of moss) clear of vegitation.

A cracking close up capture Karen, she's a beautiful shade of limegreen. Perhaps epz's entimologists Bricurtis and AdeOsman will be able to answer your question
