Dragonfly with hitch-hikers ?

Hi.  I have  some unusual pics of  what might be strange behaviour of a D'fly and some seven spotted ladybirds.  I saw the d'fly on the garden fence with some ladybirds and got the camera out.  As I attempted to get a close up of the d'fly it flew away but returned to the same spot on the fence. This  happened a number of times but I got several pics.  It was only when I was tranferring pics. onto the computer that I noticed what seemed to be small ladybirds parked on the d'fly at the point where the wings joined the body. I cannot find any info about this and I hope I am not seeing  things, hence this post.  Eventually the d'fly left the fence complete with cargo.

 

I would be very happy to learn if anyone in the forum can throw some light on the situation
