Love is… two dragonflies mating


True love: These dragonflies remarkably formed a heart shape while mating

This picture shows two dragonflies making love in the most romantic way - by forming a heart shape.

Shocked Chelyapin Dmitry almost choked on his picnic as he sat with his family by a lake near his hometown of Chelyabinsk, Russia.

Out of the corner of his eye, he was stunned to see the pair creating the universal sign of love.

Chelyapin quickly dropped his sandwiches and grabbed his point-and-shoot digital camera to snap this incredible close-up picture of the moment.

The amateur snapper's amazing shots perfectly capture the bright blue dragonfly and its brown companion topping and tailing in the warm summer sunshine.

The 46-year-old said: 'It was a hot day. We had a rest by a lake and had a picnic. I saw the dragonflies out of the corner of my eye and just started laughing.

'I was surprised to see them making a heart shape - it was very unusual taking into consideration the awkward way they were going about making love and continuing the never ending circle of life.

'But everything in life happens for a reason - I believe it was a sign that love was in the air.'

The amateur photographer nicknamed the dragonflies Yin and Yang after spending 20 minutes watching and photographing them.

He added: 'Nature is all about love and these images show that.'
