To complete today’s nature studies an old video from a previous garden of a dragonfly stuck in the skin from its nymph stage.
…and so it struggled to free itself…Get the Flash Player to see this video.
Once freed it sat recuperating for a while; so I stopped filming and it immediately took off into the summer sky…. somedays nothing seems to go right.
I apologise to those searching for the Dragonfly nymph pictures from last year as they seem to have become lost in the move to this dot net site. I did spot an empty one today…
Just missed a couple of [W:dragonflies] emerging from their larval skins and could not get close enough for a good picture.
I did manage to collect an abandoned skin once they had departed.
