Emerging Chasers

By Mendipman  
Taken in the gardens at Farm Lator in north east Hungary.

This was an unexpected find, taking a look around the pond in the garden trying to catch a glimpse of the raft spiders when I noticed these two emerging, just out of shot there are two more clambering up the stem from the water below.

The biggest problem was trying to get them both in the same focal plane, not helped by a light breeze, needless to say I took a large number of shots over a period of an hour as they both slowly emerged from their larval casings.

Can't be sure which species they are other than Chasers, there were a few adults on the wing which looked very much like Broad bodied Chasers to me.

Many thanks for all the votes and comments on the previous upload of the fly and especially for the user awards from Carol, Malcolm and Julia, very much appreciated.
