Courtship and mating

Courtship display: The female stimulates the male showing receptiveness. With the back arched, the rigid wings a bit raised as if touching the tips at the back and the head lowered. The male perceives the female´s disposition and follows her. They engage in a merry-go-round movement and after three turns the female stops to be mounted. The female does not dip the head into the water. As the action is finished the female goes away with a wing shuffling. The male makes a bow display arching his body and lowering the head.
