A New Emperor.

Yesterday a new Emperor Dragonfly proudly spread its wings soon after  emerging from my garden pond.I saw this teneral dragonfly as he 'shimmied ' his wings in preparation for a first flight.Within a minute or two he had fluttered off.Just a few feet away he landed on a shaded branch of a hawthorn tree where he remained for the rest of the day,only departing this morning.
