Blue & Black Mating Dragonflies

These dragonflies are really thin bodied and have a crazy little clamper hook at the bottom of their tail. At first I thought the hook was possibly a stinger (somewhat scorpion shaped, like two half moons leaning into one another), which I have never seen on any other dragonfly before- but then I saw them mating and realized this clamp is holding the one on the bottom in place. By the neck. Hardcore!
