Large Red Damselfly

Hurrah, the dragonflies are here at last! Although they're not late.....I've not seen them around here in April before...it's usually at least the second week of May before they're on the wing. Although they're called "Large Red Damselflies" these lovelies are actually only just over an inch long. None of the Damselflies are much bigger than this and even the biggest of the Dragonflies which are somewhat larger than the Damsels are not much more than a couple of inches in length in the UK. Not the prettiest of the Dragonflies this but nice to welcome back all the same. This one was perching in our back garden, I didn't even have to go hunting. I like it when nature comes to me.
