#106 Maiden flight

Feeling a lot better today and all set for a return to work tomorrow. I managed a few minutes out in the sun again, and was chuffed to see my first damselfly of the year.

It fluttered past the pond and decided the ideal landing place was – the recycling wheelie bin!  Not the best background for an image, but it would have to do.  As I suspected, it proved to be a Large Red Damselfly.  The deep red is still not fully developed, and the flight was the typical ‘still getting used to it’ fluttering of a relatively newly emerged damsel, so it probably wasn’t long ago that this one was a creature in the depths of the pond.   It’s now a sign of the Summer to come…

Large red damselfly. Only it's not large, and it's not very red yet either..
