So err i was out in the garden this morning and was lucky enough to catch a glimpse of a hatchling Golden Dragon-fly. Fresh from the egg and drying its wings in the morning sun...



I crept a little closer;



Oh no too close i startled the poor wee bub;



the little fella is tiny managed to pick him and his egg up in little handful as his wings arent fit for flying yet and he measures just under 4 inches




he sat still for ages letting me get some close up shots while he dried his wings, his huge boggly eyes look like watermelon tourmaline gemstones;




 it started to rain so i sheltered him with a blanket so he could keep dry

 a little later he flew off and just left his beautiful egg. Did you know the inside of dragon-fly eggs glow in the dark, i guess it attracts lots of moths for food to help the teeny tiny golden dragonfly hatchling to grow into the giant 40ft sleek adult beast.
