Just emerged dragonfly in Cotswolds, England

Noticing a lot of activity around the pond, we soon saw some exciting activity which turned out to be dragonfly larvae emerging from their chrysalises and drying out their wings for the first time. This shot shows the extent to which they grow inside a tiny shell and the amazing result!
