I was thoroughly watching the activities of dragonflies in a small garden pond at my house

and had seen many newly emerged dragonflies basking,many larvae and umpteen empty pupacages clinging on to the sidewalls and plants nearby,but never seen an emergence

and after a long wait I found an emergence yesterday night,


See how the worm like creature that emerged from the larva transformed into a beauty in less than 40 minutes

I was watching its wings being developed from athe crippled stumps with wonderment

It was a memorable experience


later in the morning the dragonfly was missing inside my house

and traced it at 11:30 am

and after a photosession let it go
