A new dragonfly showed up at the pond today. Apparently a female because she was dipping her tail in the water, which I assume to be egg laying. She seemed to be selecting an area with a lot of algae and leaves on the surface. Possibly the eggs need to adhere to something. I don't know what kind this is yet. Mr. Flame Skimmer was there but didn't pay any attention to her.
Below is the next photo in the series, showing her holding her tail perpendicular to the water and dipping it. I know these are not great photos but they are the best I could manage. After she was done with this she took off and apparently left the pond area.
Hopefully this will lead to a new generation of dragonflies in the garden next season.
