Update on the broad brood…

David Williams has sent in some great photos of the Broad-bodied Chaser larvae that he has been following in his pond. It’s amazing to see how much they have grown in stature over a short period and are now significant beasts! David says despite being known to dwell in the silt at the bottom of water bodies they are often seen fairly exposed on the shallow edges of the pond clearly visible (below right) above the pond liner. He sees many doing this and it is unclear if these represent the majority¬†or many more are still submerged in the silt.
