Dragonflies Mating

I was birding at San Jacinto Wildlife Area, and noted many dragonflies. For the most part they were patrolling the ponds, not alighting on the shore or plants. Several pairs were mating in flight. This pair finally settled on some grass in the water. The lower one is half-submerged in the water, probably laying eggs, and is reflected below.
