Enough with the flowers then, time to get back to the insects. This is the final larval stage of a Broad Bodied Chaser Dragonfly a day or so away from its emergence from the aquatic world in which it has spent the last year or two. From this rather strange looking insect will emerge one of my favourite Dragonflies. You want to see it emerging, holding on to a flower stem whilst its wings expand and dry before posing for one last shot before flying off? No problem, give me a day or two. Tomorrow though, we'll have the Damned's favourite duck. Canon EOS 5D
