This emergence of a Large Red damselfly was taken by our small garden pond on 10 May 2009 .
Its a wonderful thing to watch and from it first popping out of the casing (exuviae) to it being fully pumped up takes about two to two and a half hours - incredible!
Start time of 08:43 GMT (09:43 BST) - finish time 10:49 GMT (11:49 BST)
