Level Headed

Yesterday proved to be my first ‘proper’ dragonfly day of the year. Despite cool & cloudy conditions it was well worth the 2 hour trip. Increased my species count from 2 to 6.

Among these were two fresh female Hairy Dragonflies, one of which still has it’s wings closed. We were lucky to see (and hear) her ‘snap’ them open and take her virgin flight. Hovered for 30 seconds to test her wings before settling back down in the grass.

Moments like this are what I live for….
