…well a dog bed to be precise! Graham Wenman has sent in some photos of the Large Red Damselfly larvae he found residing in his ‘dog bed pond’. The larvae are squat and distinctive and you can see the noticeable right angles at the hind corners of the head. These larvae are mature and will be ready to emerge as soon as we get through the April snows! It’s amazing how even a small body of water can support so much life and looking at the photo, a dog bed clearly makes a great little pond.
The purpose of this blog is to keep dragonfly enthusiasts up to date with dragonfly activity throughout the season. This way we should all know first hand what’s on the wing in Shropshire.
All are very welcome to be part of this seasonal diary. Get in touch at firstname.lastname@example.org with sightings and photographs so I can post them on the blog. Even if you’re new to dragonflies and not sure what you have photographed please send it in and get involved in the 2021 Shropshire Dragonfly Watch.
