Dragonfly

I saw this dragonfly slowly opening its wings and stay motioness all afternoon, waiting for them to dry in the sunshine...

..because it had just emerged from this first nymphal skin, below. (looked that bit up in my book!).

You can see where it burst out of the back!

Carrie - hellooo!
It was a real pleasure meeting you and then reading your wonderful blog. That just confirmed the impression I had of you.
Give me a shout next time you're at a loose end in Manchester.

Hi Joe.
Nice to meet you too. Wasn't the food great at the Centre.
Glad you like the blog though I hope it won't put you off your own boating plans!
See ya
Carrie
