The long wait is over - Large Red Damsels are back in town. Well, not town, if they have any sense, more like country. Today I visited a new site to me but one which produced the first reported Large Red Damsels in Beds last year. Bingo! And what a beauty!! Happy camper. :)
We even found an exuvia complete with lamellae.

Saw my first one...

...for 2011 on 09/04. Still a few days past the 05/04 one I saw in 2009. And yes, it's a heartening sight knowing that the Chasers will start appearing in just a few weeks (possibly sooner if this wonderful weather continues?).
Kind Regards

Ah ha ...

... the advantages of being a little further south, Vinny. I've always known I live too far north. Carcassonne would be nice. ;-)

Like the photos

Look forward to seeing some maybe by our pond again with some luck.
