Insect on water iris leaf, about 5 cm long, not moving, the green bits on body are duckweed from pond - I have never seen dragonflies in my garden until the other evening when I saw a huge blue bodied dragonfly take off from the garden pond - I am wondering if this is maybe related - a partially grown descendent of the blue adult that I saw, as it seems odd that after all these years of no sightings, two different kinds appear in the same week... any ideas or identifications would be great, I would love for my pond to become a regular visiting spot for dragonflies!
