Emerald dragonfly (female, oviposition)

The following “raw” video clip (unedited) shows a female Mocha Emerald dragonfly (Somatochlora linearis), laying eggs by the process of oviposition. The process typically lasts a few seconds to a few minutes.

This individual was spotted during a photowalk through the “Wildlife Sanctuary,” one of seven small parks in the community of Hollin Hills, Fairfax County, Virginia USA.
