Artist's Description

A dragonfly emerging from its nymph case beside a fishing-lake in Northamptonshire, UK. This dragonfly is a Four-spotted Chaser (Libellula Quadrimaculata) and is from the darter species. Its wings do not yet have their markings, but within a short while it will have had time to dry and will look like this.

They spend two years as nymphs before emerging as dragonflys in May. The cycle begins again when they lay their eggs around August.

Image made using a Nikon D5000 with Sigma 24-70mm f/2.8 lens @ 70mm, f/8 – 1/200s – ISO 200. Shot Raw and processed in CS5.
