Three photographs of copulating Sympetrum danae (Sulzer) in flight are presented and described. Comparing them with earlier published evidence the author postulates two flight types, viz. (1) the d abdomen is quite straight, the 9 thorax, therefore, orientated in a right angle to the flight direction; the female remains passive and is carried by the male; (2) the d abdomen is bent upward, the 9 thorax thus parallel to the flight direction; both d and 9 participate actively in flight.
