Slow Going at my Garden Pond.

Activity at my garden pond has not been great to date.Only now do the Azure and Large Red Damselflies seem to be in the mood to mate and oviposit.I have not witnessed any damselfly emergents yet.
A adult male Broad-bodied Chaser arrived at the pond a couple of days ago and was just preceded by a female.Apart from one Broad-bodied Chaser exuvia earlier in the season  I have found just two Emperor Dragonfly exuviae. Not very encouraging so far.I am hoping for the sight of the larger dragonflies too cruising around the garden soon,so fingers crossed.
