Large Red Damselflies still in bed…?

By April 6, 2021 Blog

…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.
