Emerging dragonflies: 30 Days Wild No. 14

Strange things are creeping out of the wildlife pond – and then creeping out of their skins.

We’re finding dragonfly ‘casings’ on the marginal plants, and seeing plenty of these amazing creatures on the wing too. We’re not entirely sure what emerged from this exuvia. It looks a bit long and slender for a broad bodied chaser, the most numerous dragonfly around here at the moment – it could be an emperor dragonfly though. And there are plenty of damselflies dancing around ┬áthe wildlife pond as well. Hopefully there will be dragonflies and damselflies all the way through until autumn now. #30DaysWild No. 14
