OtherPix: 3: Side by Side

A similar situation is portrayed in this photograph (made in the Netherlands in May 2010), where a female Common Winter Damsel (Sympecma fusca) is seemingly being stalked by a male Hairy Hawker (Brachytron pratense). But again she probably knew what she was doing when she sat down on this twig; she apparently felt quite at ease and under no threat whatsoever from her bigger perchmate.
