Just returned from an excellent short break in Dorset, and on one of our days out, we took a visit to Arne reserve, where not only did we see lots of Deer, but also found this Dragonfly that appears to have just hatched from its Larvae stage.
Please correct me if I am wrong, and if anyone knows what species this is, then I would love to know.

    Lol Richard Ive managed it ONCE! I do keep trying tho lol

  • Well, I cheated a little. I saw it flapping it’s wings in a small pond, so I found a long stick, reached in, and it took hold of it so that I could bring it to dry land, so this is my reward. :-))

    only one thing wrong with that….I’d run a mile if it came near me!!!! lol

  • LOL. As it had just hatched, it couldn’t fly as its wings weren’t fully operational. x
