Azure damselfly larva - Brian WalkerThis is a larva of Azure Damselfly Coenagrion puella, one of several individuals that were caught during pond dipping at the launch of our first English Hot Spot at Shropshire Hills Discovery Centre on 26th May.  It will have developed from an egg laid in the water last summer and a visit to this site in June will see this individual having emerged, with many others, and ready to complete its life cycle.
