How They Have Grown

Large Red Damselfly – Pyrrhosoma nymphula

The light was not so good late yesterday afternoon, but I was determined to try and get a photograph of one of the many Large Red Damselfly (Pyrrhosoma nymphula) larvae which inhabit my garden pond in its natural setting. This one was on a stone in the shallows near the pond’s edge. I cannot believe how quickly they are growing since I first saw them last August.

  1. I would love to have a pond in our garden but it’s too small. At our farm we have a small one and there are lots of interesting things to find there.

    1. My gardens only small, so I only have a small pond, about 2m square. But they are very interesting and relaxing to sit by. It is good you have one at your farm to enjoy 🙂

      1. I thought that for most it was 2. Through the years have netted many in various stages in pond studies with school children. They intrigue from beginning to end 🙂
