The Reds Are First Again

Here on the Isle of Wight the spring weather has at last arrived and the first damselflies are on the wing.The prolonged cold  snap of March and April is now hopefully over and today I was fortunate enough to observe six Large Red Damselflies flutter away from the pond at Clamerkin NT during my brief midday visit.
Not all  newly emerged damselflies fared well as can be seen by the second photograph.
