Beautiful composition. I love the reflection. What a great find.

@Julie Brown: I was able to observe this female putting the eggs in the water for quite a while. I was just lucky she came close enough to make some images. The water surface was very clear due to lack of wind. It was one of those very few opportunitys to get a sharp reflection too.
