Large red damselfly

Large red damselflies are first of our damsels/dragons to emerge in spring. The male latches on to the female by holding on to her neck with claspers while she searches the pond for egg-laying sites.

    Seen the red damsel flies over our pond and also a pair of iridescent blue flies. Haven’t seen them pairing or laying as yet. A few larvae might keep the midge larva population down.
