I was hoping for an 'After', but looking out of the window I can't see it - I shall have another look when the lighting is better.

After a huge downpour, with hail and torrential rain, I was stood at the sitting room window last night when I saw this Broad Bodied Chaser haul itself out of the garden pond and up the Iris leaves. Hopefully the dragonfly is sheltering nearby.

Nicely captured image of the nymph. I hope you manage to get the Dragonfly too.

No, I missed that one...............but I have just found another!! Grin It's on the Marsh Marigolds, drying out as I type. I have an early photo, but I'm hoping to get a few of it with its wings open before it flies! (Only problem being it's deep amongst the leaves, so everything looks shadowed and 'green'!). Smile
Isn't it amazing how such a strange looking. nymph can turn into a beautiful dragon fly. Nicely captured Karen. Pam
