Hi Dawn the dragonfly emerged from the casing its still clinging to.

As nymphs they can spend several years in a pond eating anything they can tackle tadpoles water snails etc ..they then climb up reeds rushes etc usually at night and hatch from these cases leaving a perfect empty shell behind.

Ray wrote a blog for me to include my pics and explain the sequence.

Wow..., now that's something you don't get to see every day. Great shot, wish I'd been there to watch it with you two...!

31 Jul, 2010

 

Lol Flower .. well any time you can convince Roger to come over you ll always be welcome , outside the NFL season of course ..

31 Jul, 2010

 

Well if it's not NFL season, then it will be Nascar season, so it looks like I'm fresh out of luck either way...;-)

1 Aug, 2010

 

Seems like you got the work done in your home off season then .. we ve just had the Soccer World cup fortunately England knocked out quickly so Jane got some extra decorating out of me ..

2 Aug, 2010

 

Ha ha...,I have a strong feeling Jane would have gotten it out of you anyway....lol

2 Aug, 2010

 

Well it sure helped with stripping wallpaper ..great chunks flew off as I cursed them !

2 Aug, 2010

 

Lol....,you're not one of those type of fans are you?....Bonkers, you naughty boy ! Does Jane leave the house when the game comes on, or does she move the TV into the next room that needs the wallpaper stripped....lol

2 Aug, 2010

 

Aye she does ..clever isnt she? done the whole house in record time mm yes its hard to explain Soccer our NFL or baseball ..I ve often thought even if we had the world series in our own country we d still lose ...
