Description:

Emperor Dragonflies have been seen on Walton Hall's flower meadow ponds since mid May, but their numbers appear to be increasing slowly. Initially you'd only see one individual at a time, but now several individuals can often be seen in close proximity at the ponds and over the meadow.
