The eggs have hatched!

By June 22, 2020 Blog

Following on from David Williams amazing photos of Broad-bodied Chaser eggs….they have now hatched and David has sent in some photos of the larvae. They are around 1.5mm in size and the photograph (left) shows how large the remaining eggs still appear in comparison. Faced with the prospect of supplying these larvae with small enough food (Daphnia apparently far too improbable) David has decided to return them to the pond to let nature provide! Great photos providing a real insight to the life stages we so rarely see.
