Fairies?

Today is warm…..and this morning in the early sun there were many newly emerged Dragonflies sitting on water reeds before their first flights…it was magic to watch as they opened their wings for the first time, sat for half an hour or so, then began to flex their legs and wings before beginning a whole body and wing tremor for another couple of minutes and then up and away…..I was not there early enough to see any emerge from the nymph shell and think this may happen before dawn.  Perhaps tomorrow I shall go down with a torch and see if I can catch that happening.  I hope you enjoy seeing these.

Reeds with Dragonflies warming in the sun

This last one was different – orange in colour and smaller with distinctly dark tips to its wings.
