I have subbed your article here: A87919681 please remember to subscribe!
I didn't have any problems and I have now applied the photos, please check they're in the right places. I've credited both you and Gnomon but that won't show until the entry is live. It's ready to return to the Eds for final polish when you have had a read-through.

It's a while since I last read this, so I'd like a couple of tweaks to what I wrote please!
"The eggs and sperm are produced at the very tip of the insects' long abdomens. Male insects transfer their sperm to 'accessory genitalia' " - I think that would be better as "The eggs and sperm are produced at the very tip of these insects' long abdomens. Males transfer their sperm to 'accessory genitalia' " (just to clarify that this isn't typical of all insects)
Could you put the Large Red Damselfly Photo link on the words Large Red Damselfly please? Similarly the Brown Hawker Photo link could go on the words 'Brown Hawker'.
Could you add a sentence at the beginning of the last paragraph to say: "There are a number of other Dragonflies and Damselflies you may encounter, but there are good books and field guides you can get to help you to identify them." ?
Gnomon's Demoiselle just needs moving up one paragraph and the other two photos look great applied to the Entry
