Large Red Damselfly

 The Large Red Damselfly is one of the commonest found in Britain and one of the first to be seen. They can be found on any type of water habitat, lakes, ponds, rivers, fields and gardens ponds, canals, etc. They fly from May to August.

Two adults copulating, with the female below the male ovipositing [laying eggs] in my garden pond.

This immature Large Red Damselfly is still clinging to the Nymph casing that it has recently emerged from and, is still drying itself.
